From May 27 to June 7, FlixBus will offer a new, first class travel option between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
“People across California know us for our impeccable service. With our high-quality standard product, we have managed to convince many travelers to take the bus over other means of transport,” said Pierre Gourdain, managing director, FlixBus USA. “Now, we are trying something new, starting with a 10-day pilot. Between May 27 and June 7, a Premium Service bus will connect Las Vegas and Los Angeles.”
FlixBus is the only company to currently offer this type of express first-class service between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The relation is the most popular in the U.S. network, making it the best route to pilot a new product experience that has the potential to attract an even wider range of customers.
The first-class seats are configured in a spacious two-to-one arrangement and offer even more leg and elbow room than the rest of the FlixBus fleet that already offers more legroom than other intercity bus providers. Complimentary snacks and beverages will be made available to passengers throughout the duration of the trip. The trips will also have a FlixBus attendant onboard ensuring the comfort of every passenger. Free Wi-Fi, power outlets at every seat, and onboard entertainment, as well as carbon-neutral ticketing options, are available just like on the usual FlixBus trips. Tickets will be available from $59.99 (incl snacks & beverages) and can be booked on the FlixBus website or in the App.
Passengers will be traveling in top-of-the-line luxury coaches from Prevost. Just like the entire FlixBus network, this bus will be operated by a local bus partner — Alvand from Glendale, Calif.
To offer the most seamless experience, passengers can choose between two pick up and drop off locations in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. In Los Angeles, the new service stops in Downtown (one block from Union Station) or in Hollywood (adjacent to Hollywood/Highland). In Las Vegas, trips will stop at the Tropicana Hotel as well as the Fashion Show Mall both conveniently located on the Vegas Strip. During the trial period, the premium express bus will run every day, with either morning or evening departures available. Passengers can expect trips to last less than 5.5 hours with some trips arriving at their final destination within 4.5 hours.
