FlixBus, North America’s fastest-growing intercity bus service, is kicking off service to Olympia, Washington, for the first time in the company’s history with a new stop at the Olympia Transit Center with service starting on August 11.
FlixBus has a large network of destinations throughout the Pacific Northwest ranging from Eugene, Oregon, to Spokane, Washington to U.S.-Canada cross-border routes from Seattle to Vancouver, British Columbia. Olympia’s new stop location will be located in the heart of FlixBus’ Pacific Northwest network with service to Tacoma, Portland, Seattle, Corvallis, Everett and more.
Service from Olympia will depart daily in multiple directions from the Olympia Transit Center in downtown Olympia at 205 Franklin St NE with easy access to colleges and universities in the region, including the University of Washington, University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Western Washington University, Central Washington University, Gonzaga University and more. Additionally, Olympia riders can enjoy easy connections to Sea-Tac Airport for local and international flights.
“Intercity Transit is proud to welcome FlixBus to the Olympia Transit Center,” said Ann Freeman Manzanares, Intercity Transit’s General Manager. “One of the primary drivers for expanding the transit center was to support multi-modal service, providing regional connections with local service. With FlixBus serving the Olympia Transit Center, our community has better access to regional and international transportation options.“
This service will be run by MTR Western, a local Seattle-based FlixBus partner who trusts in FlixBus’ technological expertise in pricing, marketing and sales, route intelligence, quality management and continuous product expansion. The buses will also apply the company’s international standard, which includes services such as free on-board Wi-Fi.
Save money and carbon emissions with intercity buses
Intercity buses are not only more affordable than private cars, FlixBus puts the power of sustainability into riders’ hands through optional carbon offset credits:
- FlixBus has collaborated with atmosfair to offer customers the option to travel climate friendly on their FlixBus journey. Customers can purchase “CO2 Compensation” tickets during booking, thereby making a voluntary environmental contribution.
- The optional cost of traveling green will be added to customers’ ticket prices, approximately 1-3% of the original ticket price.
- FlixBus CO2 Compensation Ticket donations are financing atmosfair’s UN-accredited Gold Standard Climate Protection Project Cleaner Cook Stoves in Rwanda. These efficient stoves make it possible for people in rural Rwanda to use around 80% less wood than traditional hearths when they cook. The project thus helps to preserve local forests, the last habitat for mountain gorillas in the world, and contribute to global climate protection.
