A Better, Greener Way to Travel: FlixBus Rolls into the Pacific Northwest

“In partnership with Seattle-based MTR Western, Europe’s leading mobility provider will hit highways throughout Washington and Oregon this November

+  FlixBus partners with local charter company MTR Western, owned by Howard Wright

+  7 round trips daily between Seattle and Portland and tickets for $9.99
+  Convenient for students with on-campus stops at OU, OSU and CWU

+  Nearly 65% of FlixBus USA first-time users have never taken a long-distance bus before

“After revolutionizing long-distance bus travel across 28 countries in Europe and cementing its presence on both the East and West Coasts, FlixBus, America’s fastest-growing bus provider, is headed for the Pacific Northwest. The tech-meets-travel company will connect Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Olympia, Corvallis, Coeur d’Alene, Albany, Ellensburg and Salem. Tickets are currently on sale with prices starting at $9.99. The lime green buses will hit highways in the region on November 21.

“From Seattle to Portland FlixBus will offer seven trips per direction at the start of service and will beat the travel time of legacy competitors in the region.”

The Eco-Friendliest Long-Distance Travel in the US

“FlixBus is known for its green initiatives, like offering carbon offsetting for bus trips, introducing the long-distance electrical buses in Europe and announcing plans for the first fuel cell powered long-distance buses in 2019. FlixBus also piloted America’s first ever electric buses on a long-distance line between San Francisco and Sacramento and plans to introduce these buses into its fleet by 2021.”

“FlixBus was launched in Germany in 2013 and after expanding to 28 countries across Europe, began service in the US in May 2018. Today, FlixBus serves nearly 100 destinations across the United States with networks in the Southwest, South, Northeast and now Pacific Northwest. In 2020, FlixBus will expand to Latin America and Asia. A full route map can be found here.” Read more
