PostBus

Punctuality, reliability and scheduled timetables can be exported

In 2000 and 2011, PostBus won WTO tenders for bus routes in the Principality of Liechtenstein and has since operated a bus network there with approximately 100 employees and a modern fleet partially powered by natural gas.

In 2003, PostBus won a contract to operate the urban bus network in Dole, France. Routes and networks were later added in Bourg-en-Bresse, Haguenau, Mâcon, Agde and Villefrance-sur-Saône. PostBus also operates regional transport routes in the departments of Hérault and Isère. PostBus successfully defended its position as operator of the regional bus network in Dole in 2009 for the first time, and was again awarded the franchise. Today, PostBus operates six agglomeration networks and urban routes in four regions in eastern and southern France and in Alsace.

In 2012, PostBus acquired Groupe Rochette, a family-owned business specialising in passenger transport in the departement of Loire and was awarded the contract for a new, high-traffic express bus route in the departement of Isère.  

There are now more than 600 employees in France living the values of the "Yellow Class": quality, customer focus and innovation.

Strategy

PostBus views itself as a focused supplier abroad, where values such as reliability and efficiency, and increasingly also innovation, mean that Switzerland’s high-quality public transport system is held in high esteem. Its presence is currently limited to France and Liechtenstein, with business opportunities in other countries being monitored on an ongoing basis.

Services

PostBus services abroad include urban bus networks, regional transport routes, standby and shuttle buses, school buses and contracted services as well as a comprehensive transport management system – from vehicle procurement and maintenance through to network marketing. Its international activities are limited to niche markets. PostBus currently employs around 630 staff abroad.
