Abellio UK

 

In operating Scotland’s Railway Abellio ScotRail is committed to improving connectivity, prosperity, and sense of community within and between Scotland’s towns. We recognise that our services and stations will play a major role in the economic regeneration and growth of many town centres. This will be achieved through working with local partners and communities on initiatives that will make a real difference for town centres and the people who live and work there. Investment in services, station improvements, active travel and accessibility innovations are just part of the passenger-focused plan to cater for travel from door-to-door, not just between stations. We are delighted to be supporting this year’s Scotland’s Towns Week and look forward to establishing a long term relationship with Scotland’s Towns Partnership to ensure we play an important role in enabling sustainable social and economic growth for communities across the country.
