RET is on the move

27 September 2006  •  Author(s): ET

Rotterdam Electric Tram, RET, is about to implement a number of changes. These changes will occur rapidly and involve not only the organisation itself but also its equipment and its partnerships with other transport companies. Pedro Peters, CEO of RET, explains all.

The first major change RET will implement is the introduction of a smart card on trams and buses in the Rotterdam transport area. The smart card is already in limited use on the Rotterdam metro. At the same time, RET is preparing itself for 2007, the year in which the current state-owned company will become a plc. Substantial investments are also being made in new vehicles and in the construction of the first large-scale light rail system in the Netherlands, RandstadRail, which is now well under way. Pedro Peters, general manager of the RET since 1 June 2005, therefore has every reason to be extremely proud of his company, although he acknowledged that there is a lot of work ahead.
