UK: Additional Coaches to Operate on FlixBus Network

FlixBus has unveiled its latest UK growth plans, expanding its partnership with bus operator, McGill’s, to include 25 coaches.

With this announcement, McGill’s has confirmed that it will place 18 new vehicles exclusively on the FlixBus network in 2023, adding to its current fleet of seven.

In 2022, FlixBus reported a 94% increase in passengers from April – September, compared to the same period in 2021

This builds upon FlixBus’s ongoing UK expansion and its successful partnership with McGill’s.

The two companies have collaborated since 2021 and have since added new lines and increased frequencies, most recently launching to the Scottish domestic market in August 2022.

This growth will continue in 2023, which will see the partners operate a total of 25 coaches.

Andreas Schorling, Managing Director of FlixBus UK said:

“Partnering with McGill’s has played a huge role in our development in the UK market. We have built a dynamic relationship which allows us both to deliver exceptional coach services and expand our sustainable, affordable and reliable network, together.

“The success of Flix both in the UK, and globally, cannot be overstated. Our strategy and business model have not only proved to be resilient to fluctuating uncertainty of the last two years, but in fact has delivered unprecedented levels of demand as travel returns to normal. We have high targets to reach next year, and are confident we will achieve our goals.”

The routes served by the new vehicles will be announced later in 2023.
