About FlixBus


Green and smart mobility to experience the world

FlixBus is a young mobility provider that has been changing the way millions of people travel in Europe over the past 3 years. As a combination of tech-startup, e-commerce-platform and transportation company, FlixBus was able to establish Europe's largest intercity bus network in the shortest amount of time.

Thanks to a user-friendly booking system and an extensive route network, we can offer travellers the opportunity to experience the world no matter their budget. Our green buses comply with the highest safety and environmental standards, so that we can offer a sustainable and convenient alternative to private transport. We provide the highest level of comfort.

FlixBus Experience – our concept for success

Our success can be attributed to the digitization of traditional bus travel. With technological advancements like our e-ticketing system, the FlixBus-App, free Wi-Fi on board and GPS Live Tracking, we have been revolutionizing the bus travel industry. Through smart network planning and dynamic price management, we provide our customers with great offers. We also rely closely on partnerships with small and medium-sized enterprises: our regional bus partners – often family-owned companies with decades of experience, are responsible for our green FlixBus fleet. This is where the innovation and start-up spirit of FlixBus meets the experience and know-how of traditional SMEs.

From German start-up to Europe's No. 1

FlixBus was founded by three young entrepreneurs in Munich with the goal of making sustainable bus travel both comfortable and affordable. At the same time, "MeinFernbus" began operating bus routes from Berlin throughout Germany. 

After the end of the rail monopoly in 2013, these two start-ups established themselves as the leaders of the long-distance bus market and gained a strong position against international competitors. Since the merge of our teams in Munich and Berlin, we are the clear market leader in Germany.

As of 2015, FlixBus has also been expanding internationally: we’ve established domestic long-distance bus networks in France, Italy, Austria, the Netherlands and Croatia, as well as the regular cross-border services to Scandinavia, Spain, England and the region of Central and Eastern Europe. Today, passengers can benefit from Europe's largest long-distance bus network.

Currently, an international team of nearly 1,000 employees throughout Munich, Berlin, Paris, Milan, Zagreb and Copenhagen as well as thousands of our partner's bus drivers from all over Europe, stand behind the green mobility provider. Each individual contributes to making FlixBus better with every day. Do you have the personality and team spirit to help us conquer the European intercity bus market?
