After launching in the U.S. with headquarters in Los Angeles, FlixBus, Europe’s leading long-distance bus company, is preparing for expansions to Texas and the eastern U.S., including New York. The company has set up an office in New York City, which will serve as the hub for FlixBus USA’s eastern operations, set to begin in 2019.

FlixBus USA launched in May, beginning with 27 destinations including major southwestern cities such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Phoenix. In July, the company doubled its offer to include the central California corridor and the San Francisco Bay Area. Currently, 12 SME bus partners service 60 FlixBus USA destinations. FlixBus currently has 300 bus partners operating across the 29 countries and has created more than 7,000 jobs for bus drivers.

“Our bus model allows our partners to focus on the daily operation of the buses, something many of them have decades of experience in, while FlixBus manages the sales, marketing, network planning, and traffic control of the business through our technological expertise,” said André Schwämmlein, co-founder and CEO of FlixMobility.

FlixBus is not only creating jobs within the U.S. bus industry, it is also growing the overall market. According to a representative passenger survey by FlixMobility, approximately two-thirds of all FlixBus USA passengers have never used an intercity bus.
