Business Line specific context

Egis Transport Solutions Ltd have been supporting key stakeholders in Wales since 2019 including Transport for Wales (TfW) and Network Rail.

Over the past three years, TfW has created Metro networks which will be developed in Wales over the next decade: North Wales Metro, South Wales Metro and Swansea Bay and West Wales Metro.

The multi-million-pound North Wales Metro Programme will transform rail, bus and active travel services across North Wales. It will make it easier and faster to travel across North Wales and build better connections with the Northwest of England.
