“Public transport is more than just transporting travellers. It is also a catalyst for economic growth and development in the region.”
Anne Hettinga, CEO Arriva Netherlands
Successfully expanding our footprint
Thanks to our innovative, cost-effective solutions, we re-won two major contracts this year. As the opportunities for sustainable growth continue, 2018 looks set to be just as exciting for growth.
Zero-emissions for the Netherlands
Our focus on sustainability was key to our retaining the 15-year regional ‘Northern Lines’ rail contract in the Friesland and Groningen provinces. Our proposal included long-term plans for cost-effective, zero-emission trains operating on partially electrified lines.
We’ve operated the Pågatågen train services since 2007 and our innovative bid secured an eight-year contract renewal until late 2026.
29 new trains will increase network capacity and connections and the new digital mobility portal – Arriva Tågportal – will support better co-ordination of services and improve passenger information. We expect journeys to rise significantly from the 27m journeys made annually today.
Number one in Croatia
Acquiring the Autotrans Group will enable us to improve local and long-distance public transport services. We are now the market leader in the country.
