We want to wholeheartedly thank our FlixTeams, bus partners, and the drivers who have been working tirelessly, both on the ground and from afar, helping refugees and providing travel options to people fleeing Ukraine.
Our priority was always to provide immediate and unbureaucratic aid where and when it was needed the most. The first step was to offer free rides to refugees at the Ukrainian-Polish border in Przemyśl and Rzeszów and later expand this support to Suceava and Tulcea in Romania.
Until mid-June, 6,000 vouchers were donated by Flix employees and management, providing travel options for people fleeing Ukraine. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen significant changes to this demand, leading to the decision to terminate the free voucher program from the border cities and shifting our focus to meet the new demand.
We stand with Ukraine, and in response, we’ve enhanced our offer to provide more services, keeping prices affordable, and ramping up the network. Our dedicated teams are keeping a close eye on the situation, and we’re ready to react with further support in case the circumstances in Ukraine change.
