About Abellio

Abellio operates public transport contracts in Europe, while working in partnership every day to consistently exceed passengers’ and stakeholders’ expectations. 175 years of experience has embedded in Abellio a social duty to passengers which extends beyond the journey on one of our trains, trams or buses. The passenger is at the heart of everything we do. ​The delivery of safe, reliable and comfortable services is the starting point for every transport provider, but that is not enough for Abellio. Our services must play an integrated role in the socio-economic development of the societies we serve. 

​​​Every day 13,000 Abellio people provide safe, easy and reliable public transport for more than a million passengers on our services. Our operations span three countries including UK, Germany and the Netherlands, across bus, tram and train services.

In the UK we operate:

train services for ScotRail (Scotland's national railway), Greater Anglia, and Merseyrail (in a joint venture with Serco), as well as buses through Abellio London & Surrey.

We challenge the traditional conventions of travel so that we can provide better quality, safer, more convenient transport services that genuinely benefit our clients and customers, and we do it the Abellio Way - Genuine, Professional, Proactive, Inclusive. Our success is a reflection of our unique way of doing business and the Abellio Way provides a common and collaborative way of working with our clients, stakeholders, and each other.
