FlixBus is making its East Coast debut with routes connecting New York City; Washington, D.C.; Baltimore; and Richmond, Virginia up to 11 times per day.

The bright green buses will hit the streets of Manhattan on May 30, exactly one year after FlixBus entered the U.S. with routes starting from California, which now span nine states.

FlixBus was launched in Germany in 2013 and, after expanding to 28 countries across Europe, started service in the U.S. in May 2018 with routes connecting major hubs in the Southwest. In March 2019, a second network started in the Southern U.S., with routes in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi; in April, a third launch took place in Utah.

To introduce the East Coast into the FlixBus network, all tickets will be priced at $4.99. Thereafter, the lowest ticket price will average $4.99, with prices varying depending on seasonality and demand.
