Projects

The Futura as a FlixBus

In the Netherlands and abroad, growing numbers of VDL coaches are operating as ‘green intercity’ services. Several customers of VDL Bus & Coach are partners of FlixBus, a German business that has been operating national and international intercity bus services, since 3 December 2015.

Travel by FlixBus is almost as fast as train travel. Thanks to the use of luxury coaches, equipped with a range of features including reading lights, plug sockets and wifi, passengers travel in extreme comfort and safety. The real advantage is the price. Booking a ticket with FlixBus is often cheaper than purchasing a train ticket. Through this approach, FlixBus aims to make coach travel more attractive, in particular for young people, and to offer a good alternative for travel by car on the routes in question.

FlixBus itself owns no vehicles. The company collaborates with local coach operators that supply the necessary coaches. All coaches that operate for FlixBus are painted in the recognisable green house style of the company.
