Our Mission: Green and Smart Mobility for Everyone to Experience the World

FlixMobility is a young mobility provider that has changed the way over 100 million people have traveled since launching the FlixBus brand in 2013. A unique combination of tech startup, e-commerce platform and sustainable transportation company, FlixBus allows travelers to experience the world, no matter their budget.

Tradition Meets Technology: The FlixBus Road to Success

The success of FlixBus can be attributed to the digitalization of the traditional bus industry. With tech solutions such as the FlixBus App, e-ticketing, free Wi-Fi and power outlets, “Where’s My Bus” GPS live tracking and an automated Delay-Management System, we are continuing to revolutionize traditional bus travel. Through smart network planning and dynamic pricing, we can provide our customers with the best offers possible. Our green FlixBus fleet relies on close Bus Partnerships with small and medium-sized companies, often family-owned businesses, who act as our regional partners and are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the buses.

Our Story

FlixMobility was founded as the start-up FlixBus by three young entrepreneurs in Munich, Germany, who had the vision of making sustainable bus travel both comfortable and affordable. FlixBus was officially launched in 2013 after the deregulation of the German bus market and quickly became the leading long-distance travel provider within the country.

In 2015, FlixBus began expanding internationally with long-distance networks in France, Italy, Denmark, the Netherlands and Croatia, as well as cross-border regular services to Norway, Spain and England. FlixBus USA launched in 2018, providing America with a new alternative in long-distance travel.

Today, passengers from around the world can benefit from Europe’s largest long-distance bus service as well as new intermodal travel options. An international team of more than 1,000 employees throughout Los Angeles, Munich, Berlin, Paris, Milan, Zagreb, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Aarhus, Prague, Budapest, Bucharest, Madrid and Warsaw – as well as thousands of our partners’ bus drivers and train operators from around Europe and the United States – stand behind the FlixBus mission.
