In just 10 days since FlixBus begun operations in Croatia, they have expanded their bus network to around 50 towns in Croatia and into Europe…
Since the first green bus left from Croatia on 16 June 2016, FlixBus have introduced more than 50 daily connections around Croatia, but have also opened up more and more access to Europe. From 1 July 2016 Zagreb and a number of other towns up and down the coast will be part of FlixBus’ network. Online ticket sales have already opened.
In cooperation with a number of partners, FlixBus have managed to cover a large part of Croatia and also into Europe since launching less than 2 weeks ago. From 1 July 2016 FlixBus will connect Zagreb with Plitvice Lakes, Krk, Baška Voda, Zadar, Biograd na moru, Vodica, Starigrad, Murter, Slavonski Brod, Vukovar and other towns on the coast. Split, Dubrovnik and Šibenik are next in their plans. Although all domestic lines will not be serviced by the distinctive green buses, passengers will still be able to enjoy the comforts and safety of FlixBus through its partners Slavonija Bus and Knežević transport.
“By including bus lines which connect local cities in the FlixBus network, we provide passengers from Croatia the possibility of purchasing a ticket easier and guarantee a comfortable journey within Croatia. Besides that, we have expanded the overall FlixBus network, increased the frequency of daily connections to the rest of Europe, but also from western Europe and enable all passengers travel information in the palm of their hands. Connecting with Dubrovnik, Šibenik and Split is in the plan and the new lines are expected soon,” Dean Čebohin, business development manager for CEE, said.
Daily lines from Zagreb to the coast are going from €12, whilst there are tickets to Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam, Budapest, Milan and other European centres from as little as €17.
“FlixBus has long been synonymous with bus travel in the rest of Europe. With the inclusion of Croatian cities in the FlixBus network, we have enabled tourists from Slovenia, Germany, Austria, Italy and other European countries easier access to Zagreb, and thus continue their journey towards the coast, either on holiday or to some of the summer festival destinations, and all on one ticket,” Petra Milanović, PR manager for FlixBus said.
