FlixBus expands intercity bus service to Annapolis, Maryland


FlixBus continues growth in Northeast Corridor to offer affordable, sustainable bus service to Chesapeake Bay region    

New York, NY. January 20, 2022FlixBus, America’s fastest-growing and most innovative intercity bus network, is continuing to expand Northeast Corridor destinations with a new stop in Annapolis, Maryland. Beginning on Thursday, January 27, 2022, Annapolis will join other major cities in the mid-Atlantic region including Washington, DC, Baltimore, Richmond and more with a dedicated stop in downtown Annapolis to provide affordable, convenient and sustainable bus services. Local residents and students from the U.S. Naval Academy, St. John’s College and more can now enjoy low-cost transportation throughout FlixBus’ expansive network of 2000+ U.S. destinations and take advantage of free Wi-Fi, on-board entertainment, power outlets and more along the way.    

“We are very excited for this long-awaited expansion into Annapolis to continue adding new options for travelers along one of our most popular routes in the U.S.,” said Pierre Gourdain, Managing Director of FlixBus USA. “Annapolis is a community that is rich in history and culture and we hope FlixBus riders will use this chance to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the mid-Atlantic region.” 

An expansion of round-trip bus service to Annapolis and the surrounding area is reason enough to celebrate, but what makes FlixBus different is the company’s commitment to sustainability:  

  • FlixBus has collaborated with atmosfair to offer customers the option to travel climate friendly on their FlixBus journey. Customers can purchase “CO2 Compensation” tickets during booking, thereby making a voluntary environmental contribution.  

  • The cost of traveling green will be added to customers' ticket prices, approximately 1-3% of the original ticket price. 

Bringing affordable and convenient travel to Annapolis and beyond 

Since FlixBus launched in the U.S. in 2018, the Northeast Corridor has been one of its busiest lines with NYC-DC and Boston-DC being among the most popular with riders. FlixBus will be expanding this line with additional service to Annapolis with service beginning on January 27, 2022. Riders who book tickets on the FlixBus App or website can find the FlixBus stop at 80 West Street, located in the heart of historic downtown Annapolis with a huge variety of dining and entertainment options available and within walking distance of the waterfront and the historic Maryland State House.  

This service expansion should be a boon for regional tourism, local residents seeking low-cost travel options to metropolitan areas like Washington, DC, Baltimore, Richmond and more, as well as new affordable travel options for cadets and students alike at Annapolis’ renowned educational institutions.  

Ride Local and Enjoy Expanded Route Options 

A network expansion is just the start of how FlixBus works to provide value, convenience and flexibility to passengers wherever they’re headed. The entire FlixBus network is comprised of and driven by regional bus partners across the country, many of which are family-owned. Riding with FlixBus means customers are helping to support these local businesses and play a part in giving back to the community that these partners serve. These local partners also help to expand the overall FlixBus network and provide value to communities from the first day of service.  

Safety First 

The safety and well-being of passengers, drivers, employees, and community is our top priority. We and our bus partners have implemented safety measures including, requiring face coverings at all times, thoroughly sanitizing buses after every trip and more to ensure a safe journey.
