FlixBus, Europe’s largest long-distance mobility company which recently expanded to the U.S., will launch the world’s first virtual reality pilot program on long-distance buses — #FlixVR — beginning with select routes to and from Las Vegas. The program will run for three months and will be available for no extra charge to passengers who reserve “panoramic seats.”

With approximately 50 virtual reality games, cinematic and travel experiences a variety of alternate, 3D realities can be enjoyed while FlixBus travelers pass the time en route to their destination.

“We are excited to launch the first long-distance virtual reality bus experience, in cooperation with Inflight VR and Pico Interactive,” said FlixBus USA Managing Director Pierre Gourdain.

Travelers simply add a seat reservation for panoramic seats on these routes; the virtual reality reservation will be displayed during the booking process. Once on board, passengers will receive a Pico Goblin 2 virtual reality headset loaded with Inflight VR content. And instruction manual will be provided to each passenger with a headset.

FlixBus launched in the U.S. in May with routes across California, Arizona, and Nevada and has since strived to win the hearts of the American audience by providing a new approach to long-distance bus travel with a modern, comfortable, and entertaining on-board experience.
