Veolia Transport Nederland is, like Connexxion, a Dutch subsidiary of Veolia Transdev. It provides bus, train and ferry services.

History[edit]

The company first appeared in the Netherlands in 1997 when it traded as CGEA. This company had a 70% share in the train company Lovers Rail who operated trains from Amsterdam to IJmuiden and Amsterdam to Lisse for the Keukenhof. It also bought the Dutch bus companies BBA, Limex and Stadsbus Maastricht. It continued to use these brand names for a while. Eventually these names disappeared and became Veolia Transport Nederland.
