Save money and carbon emissions with intercity buses 

In addition to providing convenient, affordable bus service throughout the United States and Canada, FlixBus and Greyhound riders can reduce their environmental impact through optional carbon offset credits:  

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

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

  • 75% of climate contribution donations in the United States and Canada are invested in atmosfair’s UN-accredited Gold Standard Climate Protection Project Cleaner Cook Stoves in Rwanda

  • The remaining 25% flows into the “Future of Mobility Fund”, set up together by Flix and atmosfair, to drive sustainable mobility and decarbonization in the cities and communities where we operate. These donations help to take emerging carbon-neutral technologies out of the lab and onto the road for real impact. Customers will also support local communities, NGOs and volunteer groups to make eco-friendly living choices accessible to everyone.
