Lucky Star Buses joins FlixBus network to expand Boston-New York City service


Boston-based operator will bring its years of great service and convenience to boost FlixBus’ expanding North American network 

New York, NY. (November 15, 2022). FlixBus, North America's fastest-growing intercity bus service, is proud to announce the addition of Lucky Star Buses to its bus partner network. FlixBus aims to combine its smart, sustainable and tech-focused approach with Lucky Star’s years of great service, convenience and affordability along the Boston-New York City corridor that ranks among the most popular intercity bus routes in North America.  

“Close partnerships with regional bus operators with years of experience, expertise in their markets and a history of great service like Lucky Star is what makes FlixBus such an affordable, convenient and easy-to-use bus service,” said Pierre Gourdain, President and Chief Operating Officer of FlixBus Inc. “We are excited to welcome Lucky Star to the FlixBus network and boost one of our most popular lines between New York City and Boston.” 

New capacity and new stops for Boston-NYC route 

Established in 2003, Lucky Star Buses offers competitive fares to customers traveling between Boston and New York City. Since then, Lucky Star evolved from a family style operation business into a corporation which maintains its fleet of more than 20 luxury motor coaches running daily trips on one of the busiest bus routes in the United States.  

Lucky Star’s popular route between Boston’s South Station and Lower Manhattan (145 Canal Street) will continue running on the FlixBus network with tickets now available on and the FlixBus app. This adds new options for FlixBus riders who can now enjoy two stops in Manhattan in the Chinatown neighborhood (Lower Manhattan) and in Midtown (31st Street and 8th Avenue). With trips starting as low as $24.99, this is great value for travelers looking for value and convenience when booking their next trip.

Save money and carbon emissions with intercity buses 

Lucky Star customers can also enjoy a new way to travel green with every Boston-NYC trip. FlixBus puts the power of sustainability into riders’ hands through optional carbon offset credits:  

  • 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 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.
