About Flix


Green and Smart Mobility to Experience the World

Flix is a global mobility provider that has been changing the way millions of people travel in Europe since 2013 via its FlixBus brand. As a unique combination of tech-startup, e-commerce platform and transportation company, FlixBus quickly became Europe’s largest intercity bus network, helping millions of people reach their destinations. In 2018, FlixTrain was launched, expanding this service into the rail industry. Thanks to a user-friendly booking system and extensive daily route network, Flix offers travelers the opportunity to experience the world, no matter their budget. Our green buses and long-distance trains comply with the highest safety and environmental standards, allowing us to offer a sustainable, convenient and comfortable alternative to private transportation.

The FlixTravel Experience: Our Road to Success

Our success can be attributed to the digitization of traditional bus travel. With technological advancements like our e-ticketing system, the FlixBus-App, free Wi-Fi on board, GPS Live Tracking and an automated Delay-Management System, FlixBus continues to revolutionize the bus travel industry. Through smart network planning and dynamic price management, we are able to provide our customers with the best offers possible. Our FlixBus network relies on close partnerships with small and medium-sized enterprises and often family-owned businesses – our regional bus partners – who are responsible for the green FlixBus fleet. For the operation of our long-distance FlixTrains, we cooperate with the most-successful private train operators in Europe. Through these partnerships, the innovation and start-up spirit of the Flix brands meet with the long-standing experience of traditional industry.

From German Start-Up to Europe's No. 1 

Flix was founded as the start-up FlixBus by three young entrepreneurs in Munich who had the vision of making sustainable bus travel both comfortable and affordable. FlixBus was officially launched in 2013 after the deregulation of the bus market in Germany and quickly became the leading long-distance travel provider within the country.

In 2015, FlixBus began expanding internationally with long-distance networks in France, Italy, Denmark, the Netherlands and Croatia, as well as cross-border regular services to Norway, Spain and England. Today, passengers from around the world can benefit from Europe’s largest long-distance bus service as well as new intermodal travel options. An international team of 3,000 employees in Munich, Berlin and international offices in Europe and the US – as well as thousands of our partners’ bus drivers and train operators – stand behind the green mobility provider. Each of these individuals contribute to making Flix Europe’s leading mobility provider, every day. Do you have the drive and spirit to help us build the best mobility brand in Europe and beyond?
