Abellio Group

Part of Abellio Group, a subsidiary of Nederlandse Spoorwegen.

Abellio NRW was operator of the Emscher-Ruhrtal- and the Ruhr-Sieg-network, and from 2013 began running the Wuppertal – Solingen S7 Müngstener Line. In December 2015 the Saale-Thürigen-Südharz network transferred to Abellio Rail Mitteldeutschland under a 15-year operating contract; the network serves east-west routes between Sachsen/Sachsen-Anhalt and Thüringen. On April 6, 2017, Abellio NRW started the company’s first cross-border service from Düsseldorf to Arnhem, and from December 2018 began operating Rhein-Ruhr-Express route RE11, with RE1 to follow in June 2020, under contracts running until 2033.

In July 2016 Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr announced that Abellio Rail NRW would take over operation of six S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr routes from December 2019 (S2, 3 & 9 and RB3, 40 & 41).
