At FlixMobility, our goal is to provide green and smart mobility options as alternatives to the private car. Bus travel is one of the eco-friendliest modes of transportation, and at FlixBus we take sustainability to the next level.
Every bus in the FlixBus fleet meets a high level of efficiency in terms of fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. However, it’s difficult to travel without producing any CO2 emissions at all, even in the greenest bus, so we have collaborated with atmosfair to offer you the option to travel climate friendly on your FlixBus journey.
Based on the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) by the United Nations (UN), you’re given the option to purchase “CO2 Compensation” tickets, thereby making a voluntary environmental contribution when completing your booking. The CO2 emissions from your journey are then calculated based on the duration and distance of your journey.
FlixBus CO2 Compensation Ticket donations are financing atmosfair’s UN-accredited Gold Standard Climate Protection Project Cleaner Cook Stoves in Rwanda. These efficient stoves make it possible for people in rural Rwanda to use around 80% less wood than traditional hearths when they cook. The project thus helps to preserve local forests, the last habitat for mountain gorillas in the world, and contribute to global climate protection. In addition, the project supports sustainable development in Rwanda and makes local contributions including:
In 2018, FlixMobility became the first company in the world to test E-Buses on long-distance bus routes. Currently, these all electric connections are in a pilot phase with two buses traveling between Paris and Amiens, France, and a third bus operating between Hessen and Baden-Württemberg, Germany. FlixBus E-Buses are battery-operated and rely on lithium iron phosphate technology.
With the investment into E-Bus, FlixMobility is supporting a turning point in mobility and a future of travel that is less reliant on fossil fuels. We look forward to making FlixBus even greener in the years to come.
