RATP Dev London is one of the largest bus operators in London, running 1,129 buses and carrying some 250 million customers every year safely to their destinations.

We run 96 routes in and around the capital, mostly under contract to Transport for London (TfL), the capital’s transport authority. TfL has ‘ownership’ of all bus routes in London and awards them to bus operators through a competitive tendering process, usually for a term of five years.

We run our bus routes from 10 operational bases. Many of our bus routes are 24-hour operations and most run seven days a week.

As well as daily commuters, our diverse customer base includes shoppers, tourists, visitors to London and people travelling to hospital appointments. Our uniformed, knowledgeable drivers are trained to recognise the special travel requirements of all customers, and this can include wheelchair users, the partially sighted, the hard of hearing and visitors to the capital who do not speak English and are lost.

We are highly supportive of ‘green’ transport solutions and look for ways of reducing the impact our operations have on the environment. For example, by the end of 2021, 20% of our entire fleet will be clean (fully electric), with four electric garages and 13 routes. No other bus operator in London has a greater percentage of emission-free vehicles.

Our business lines

IMPLEMENTING TAILORED SOLUTIONS

Jointly building reliable, accessible transportation systems from scratch? Restructuring existing operations to suit available resources? Maintaining them long-term, designing innovative solutions, or incorporating new modes into a system? Whatever the context, our agile, out-of-the-box approach helps us make all your projects a reality.

It’s more than a mission. It’s our pledge to you: to improve the quality of life and daily routine for passengers, by continuing to improve safety and comfort, and by providing tailored solutions. To link neighborhoods, cities, and regions. To bring people together.

TOGETHER, BUILDING THE CITY OF TOMORROW

Every city is one-of-a-kind. Ready-made solutions won't do. We offer tailored solutions adapted to your needs. 

With you—transit authorities, local decision-makers and partners—we build solutions based on extensive analysis of your specific expectations and requirements, and those of passengers. The result is a solution tailored to you.

Our expertise across all transportation modes helps you choose the most appropriate solution. From there on we take care of all the rest, from study and design to building, controls, commissioning, operational maintenance, operation, and ticketing. We're there for the duration thanks to adaptations designed with you, for you.

SUPPORTING YOUR REGION'S DEVELOPMENT

Developing mass transit boosts regional economies and promotes growth.

This is the role filled by our 110 transportation systems. We transfer skills and help promote sustainable development in harmony with the local fabric. With better public transit, cities and territories begin a virtuous cycle leading to increased business opportunities and job creation. We hire locally and currently train and support 16,000 employees.  

We are driven by our commitments to corporate social and environmental responsibility, and so are our employees who volunteer. This is materialized through grass-roots involvement, as is seen in Johannesburg, Manila, Washington, and Valenciennes. 

TAKING ACTION FOR AN EXCELLENT PASSENGER EXPERIENCE

We are proud of our most precious resource—the men and women who work for RATP Dev. People are at the heart of what we do. That means offering our staff meaningful opportunities, and bringing customers and passengers the solutions they trust us to provide. The goal is to give everyone access to convenient transportation and a more pleasant city to live in.  

Greater well-being, serenity, and safety: that's our pledge to you.
