PostAuto grows in southern France

Car Postal France, the French arm of Switzerland’s PostAuto, has boosted its share of business in the Loire region by retaining until 2021 a key contract in Saint-Etienne worth 2.7million (£2.35million).

It will boost local services and buy 11 new buses for routes provided within the Société de Transports de l’Agglomération Stéphanoise (STAS) public transport network in the Loire capital south-west of Lyon. It operates 722 buses in nine French urban areas and five regions from the Alsace to the Mediterranean.
