FlixBus UK expands network to 10 more destinations

Intercity coach provider FlixBus has expended again with service to 10 new UK-destinations.

It includes its first two stops in Scotland along with other popular domestic holiday destinations.

It comes after the company re-launched its domestic network in April 2021 and a first expansion in mid-May.

Andreas Schorling, Managing Director FlixBus UK  said: "We've had a fantastic start of operations and have really enjoyed enabling people to travel again in these last three months. This is a great time for people in the UK to discover their own country."

FlixBus is now offering more than 60 routes across 36 cities in the UK with prices starting at £0.99.

This is the company's biggest expansion in the UK so far.

New cities added to the route network include Bath, Chesterfield, Chippenham, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leamington Spa, Newcastle, Reading and Sunderland.

Scotland is a brand-new addition to the FlixBus network.

 The entire FlixBus network is comprised of and driven by regional coach partners across the country such as McGill's based in the west of Scotland.

James Easdale, chairman, McGill's Group, said: "We are delighted to be entering into partnership with FlixBus to deliver their very first route from Scotland down to London."

 In early June 2021, Flixbus announced its newly closed funding round of $650  million,which will help fund its expansion plans.

"Where coach travel is already very popular across the UK, we believe that the market still has the potential to grow," Schorlin said.
