Our Vision: Safe and Sustainable Mobility
Our parent company, Veolia Transport, is a world leader in public transportation, with operations spanning 30 countries.
We’ve made it our mission to be the partner of choice for transit authorities and the benchmark against which all others are measured. It’s an objective articulated in our company’s vision: “We are setting the standard for managing safe and sustainable mobility solutions.”
Setting the Standard
In a world where most people now live in urban areas, efficient mobility systems are essential. Veolia Transportation is meeting that need, with innovative, cost-effective solutions for clients and passengers across North America. We’re continually identifying, creating and implementing new ways to improve service and enhance efficiency.
As experienced operators of virtually every mode of public transit, we know the mobility issues that communities and transit authorities face. We help clients plan, design and launch services that are well-adapted to the needs of their passengers. We have expertise in managing systems large and small, and integrating the operations of multiple modes. We’re flexible transportation specialists, providing whatever level of service our clients require, whether it is offering expert advice, managing a single function of a system, or providing delegated management of an entire system.
The Importance of Safety
In the business of public transit, there can be no greater priority than safety. Veolia Transportation is committed to the highest possible level of safety and security for our staff, our passengers and the communities to which we belong. We strive to regularly train our employees, strictly enforce safety procedures, and embed safety principles deep into the consciousness of our employees.
As transportation experts, we’re already in the sustainability business. In 2007, some 3.6 million tons of emissions were avoided as a result of mobility services provided by Veolia Transport operations worldwide. But we’re going much further, implementing a comprehensive sustainability program to instill a green culture within our company. We’re greening our vehicles, facilities and offices, and helping our clients do the same. In addition, in 2008, Veolia Transportation became the first private transportation company to join the California Climate Action Registry (CCAR). By doing so, we’ve made a public pledge to measure, report and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
Our suite of sustainability initiatives isn’t just good for the environment—it’s good for our clients, as we help them prepare for a world of rising energy costs and mandatory carbon management and trading. And we’re committed to economic sustainability too. We strive for long-term, win-win relationships with our clients, and are receptive to innovative financing arrangements such as public private partnerships.
The Complete Solution
We know that today’s passenger demands timely, cost effective service—and we deliver. We’re specialists in multimodal operations and intermodal integration, and offer creative last-mile solutions such as our on demand circulator buses, which extend mobility to areas beyond the reach of traditional transit. We’ve implemented leading-edge information technology to provide passengers with real-time travel updates at stops, aboard vehicles and in our European operations, even on their mobile phones. We use our network of global expertise to help solve our clients’ local problems.
At Veolia Transportation, our vision is to be the long-term partner of choice for our clients, providing mobility solutions that are safe, convenient, comfortable and affordable. We do everything we can to support our clients in achieving their vision for mobility in their communities.
