Perhaps you may not have heard of Abellio before; and you may wonder why we have been entrusted to run Abellio Greater Anglia – the new franchise for the train services in East Anglia – to deliver improved services.

We are part of a wider transport group, Abellio Transport Holdings, who also operate the successful Northern franchise and Merseyrail concession, plus bus services in London and Surrey. We are owned by ‘NS’ in the Netherlands who operate the rail services, stations and facilities on much of the Dutch network so are well placed to bring real improvements to your services. We are delighted that the Department for Transport (DfT) has asked us to operate the franchise until July 2014.
