Flixbus is a German brand that offers intercity bus service in Europe and the United States. It is owned by FlixMobility GmbH, which also operates FlixTrain and FlixCar.
FlixBus does not own any buses and does not employ drivers; its services run in co-operation with regional bus companies. Local partners are responsible for the day-to-day running of routes, while Flixbus is responsible for permits, network planning, marketing, pricing, quality management and customer service and retains 25–30% of the ticket price, remitting the remainder to its operating partners. This business model is highly scalable and has enabled the company to grow quickly. As of 2018, the company has a 90% market share of bus travel in Germany.
FlixBus emphasizes the sustainability of its buses, lower prices, and free Wi-Fi on board. Customers can choose to offset their carbon footprint when buying a ticket online. The offset costs between 1–3% of the ticket price and goes to internationally certified climate projects.´
