PostBus in France and Liechtenstein
The foreign subsidiaries in France and Liechtenstein are owned by PostBus Ltd.
Organizationally, CarPostal France reports directly to the Head of PostBus. However, Swiss Post has decided to exit the French business in an orderly manner. Negotiations with potential buyers are under way.
The PostAuto Liechtenstein Anstalt is operationally integrated into the Eastern region of PostBus.
Since 2004, the service offer of PostBus in France has been expanded on a continual basis. Today, we operate in 10 agglomerations in urban, as well as in 5 regions in interurban public transport in the eastern part of the country between Alsace and the Mediterranean sea. More than 26 million kilometers are driven by some 750 vehicles each year. PostBus France employs a staff of 1200 dedicated men and women who stand up for our company values every day: respect, closeness, and transparency.
PostBus in Liechtenstein
On the authority of LIECHTENSTEINmobil (LIEmobil), PostBus has operated an attractive bus network in the principality since 2001. With its well-developed synchronised timetables, PostBus transports passengers into the neighbouring state of Vorarlberg and to Switzerland. With regard to local traffic, PostBus is a reliable daily partner for commuters, school pupils and tourists alike.The timetables are continually improved in collaboration with LIEmobil.
In 2010, following an official call for tenders, PostBus was once again awarded the tender to provide the regional bus service. The contract runs for seven years with an option for a further three years. With regard to school transport, PostBus and its local partners were awarded the tenders for four lines, each running for a period of five years.
Almost 112s from Liechtenstein, Austria and Switzerland work for PostAuto Liechtenstein Anstalt. The company also enjoys a long-standing partnership with local transport companies. The professional servicing and daily maintenance of the vehicles are carried out by local firms.
With the start of business after being awarded the new contract, PostBus modernised more than half of its fleet. In December 2011 and January 2012, the transport company brought 25 new buses into service, including the first hybrid diesel buses in the country. These new buses have helped PostBus to reduce CO2 emissions and save up to 30 percent on fuel. Passengers enjoy increased comfort thanks to the low floor level when getting on and off, three doors, dual display screens and a very quiet electric engine.
