Keolis renews its contract to operate the Hellweg

The agreement was given following a competitive tender by Rhine-Ruhr Transport Authority (VRR) and Westphalia-Lippe Local Transport (NWL), the latter being the leading authority in the procurement.

Retaining the contract was especially important for Keolis Deutschland since they have other existing operations in the region and are able to share valuable resources. The contract will start in December 2018 and cover the operation of 5.7 million train-km per year on four lines servicing the cities of Bielefeld, Dortmund, Münster and Hamm. The cumulative revenue, including track access costs, is €955M over the 12 year period.

Keolis Deutschland’s commitments include increasing capacity on peak trains as well as on-board staff presence particularly for all trains running after 19:00. This will improve overall service and security for passengers.
