Where we are based?

Our bus and train services span across the UK and Germany. Abellio UK runs train operators ScotRail, West Midlands Railway (includes its sub-brand, London Northwestern Railway), Greater Anglia, as well the MerseyRail concession in a 50:50 joint venture with Serco, and East Midlands Railway.

In Germany we operate Abellio Deutschland, serving communities in North Rhine Westphalia, Saxony, Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia.

Why do we care?

Our services play an important role in contributing to the socio-economic development of the communities we serve. This has always been and will remain the function of public transport in society. For this reason the core focus of Abellio's service offering is on one simple objective: working with all partners to serve the full door-to-door journey requirements of our passengers.

Why are we doing what we do?

Abellio was established in 2002 by NS, as part of an international strategy to anticipate the effects on the industry of European legislation to liberate rail markets. This has allowed both Abellio and NS to develop an advantageous relationship where best practice is shared on a pan-European scale.

We also share our thought leadership and innovative ideas with the wider industry because we know that, for Abellio to continue to succeed, the transport industry must also thrive. This is our commitment to transport as a whole.

How we work

We are driven to deliver efficient, high quality and innovative services for our passengers and clients. The Abellio Way is a strategic framework that provides a common and collaborative way of working with our clients, stakeholders, and each other.
