FlixBus back in Birmingham with new connections and further expansion

Intercity coach travel provider FlixBus is launching new connections from various cities in the UK, including Birmingham.

From April 15, passengers can choose from a larger variety of coach services when travelling from and to Birmingham.

Initially, Birmingham will be connected to London and Manchester. The green coaches will run between the cities up to six times a day. More journeys are already in the pipeline and will be launched later this year.

Throughout the UK, FlixBus’ initial offer covers 18 routes between 12 cities. Tickets are available from 99p for a number of connections between London, Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Leeds, Leicester, Loughborough, Manchester, Sheffield as well as Swansea.

Andreas Schorling, managing director FlixBus UK, said: “Many citizens of Birmingham have held back their activities in the past months to reach the point where people can start to reunite. We are glad that we can provide a new, value for money mobility alternative to those travelling to finally meet their loved ones. Seeing the efficient vaccination program, we are hopeful that more and more passengers will have the opportunity to move around the country freely again in the upcoming months.

“Although the outlook is optimistic, we remain cautious: hygiene and safety continue to be our highest priority to ensure a safe journey.”
