FlixBus is launching its southern U.S. network with routes connecting Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Biloxi, Mississippi; Houston; New Orleans; and San Antonio, with buses set to hit the road on March 14.

The company plans to add more cities in Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas to the network throughout spring 2019.

FlixBus’ presence in Texas and Louisiana will be especially impactful for students looking for an affordable mode of transportation. Stops are conveniently-located near Rice University, Louisiana State University, and near the University of Texas at San Antonio downtown campus, with tickets set to start as low as 99 cents.

Within the FlixBus business model, the company will partner with local charter companies AJL International, Louisiana Motor Coach, Star Shuttle, and Wynne Transportation for the daily operation of the buses on southern routes while FlixBus manages the technology development, network planning, yield management, operations control, and marketing. FlixBus partners with over 300 local SME bus partners globally and has created over 7,000 jobs for local bus drivers.

Riders can choose from departures throughout the day or overnight routes to save money on a night’s stay by sleeping on the bus and wake up in their destination. Coupled with the option to purchase CO2 Neutral tickets, which offset the passenger’s carbon footprint, customers can ride knowing they’re also traveling using a sustainable transportation option.
