Germany-based tech company Flixbus will begin offering bus transportation between New York and Washington D.C. beginning this Thursday.
According to an article published in the New York Daily News, FlixBus does not own any buses: they partner with local operators who are in charge of handling their own fleet. Flixbus manages the buses ticketing, scheduling and application technology.
"We're not a bus company, we're just a service like a tech platform," said FlixBus co-founder Andre Schwammlein.
FlixBus operates in 28 European countries and recently took over as the number 2 bus company in California, behind transportation giant Greyhound.
FlixBus will run out of two NYC locations, Seventh Avenue at 33rd Street, and 28 Allen Street in Chinatown. The bus will make up to 11 runs a day with stops in Baltimore, Richmond, Virginia, and Rockville, Maryland.
Rides booked before June 10 will cost only $5.00; after that, trips will be offered for as low as $15.00.
