As Abellio Rail NRW, we operate regional rail transport services across several rail lines throughout North Rhine-Westphalia, including in the Emscher-Ruhrtal network with Bochum, Wanne-Eickel and Gelsenkirchen as well as in the Ruhr-Sieg network between Essen, Hagen, Iserlohn and Siegen. We have also been operating the "Der Müngstener" route steeped in tradition since December 2013, running over Germany’s highest rail-way bridge through the towns of Wuppertal, Remscheid and Solingen.

Since April 2017 Abellio is responsible for the cross-border route between Düsseldorf and the Dutch city of Arnhem by operating the Lower Rhine network. By end of 2018 Abellio Rail NRW will start the important "Rhine-Ruhr-Express" mobility project and in 2019 we will take over the largest batch of the Rhine-Ruhr S-Bahn and will thus become the most important pacesetter for those living in the Ruhr area.
