The interview below was given by Keolis UK CEO Alistair Gordon – with questions asked by Tramways and Urban Transit Magazine.

 

‘EUROPE HAS EMBRACED TRAMS – WHY HAVEN’T WE?

 

AS CEO of Keolis’ UK and Ireland division, the largest light rail operator in the UK and partner in a number of heavy rail franchises, Alistair Gordon has an unparalleled insight into the current challenges for public transport.

Already a regular TAUT commentator, we caught up with him in late January to gauge his views on the current state of both Keolis’ own operations (London’s Docklands Light Railway (DLR), Greater Manchester’s Metrolink and the Nottingham Express Transit tramway) and the wider industry, the ongoing pandemic, and how he sees the long-term future for tramway development.
