Veolia Transport up for sale

Veolia Transport, which provides bus and train services in parts of the Netherlands, has been put up for sale by its French parent company Veoliatransdev.

Veolia operates in Zeeland, Brabant, Limburg, Zuid-Holland and Gelderland. Current contracts, the last of which expires in 2017, will not be affected, the company said.

The company has been hard hit by the economic crisis in Europe, forcing the sale, Nos television said.
