Coach operator megabus.com began operating a new route on December 16 providing inter-city travel for Germany.
The company will operate a route between Munich, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Cologne and Brussels, providing both international services and domestic travel between German cities.
For the first time in mainland Europe, megabus.com will provide domestic inter-city travel along the route. The new services will enable people to travel between any points on the route within Germany – Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart or Munich.
The company claims that there will be €1 seats on every journey and that all other fares on the route also represent excellent value for money, particularly when compared to other modes of transport.
The new route will cover some of the biggest population centres in Germany which have a combined direct population of more than 3.8m people. It also includes Brussels which is the capital of the European Union and has a population of 1.2m.
megabus.com Managing Director Edward Hodgson said: “It’s great news for people in Germany that we have introduced these services to cut the cost of inter-city travel across key parts of the country. We are the only coach operator in Europe to offer €1 fares on all services across all routes.
“We believe consumers make their travel choices based on low fares and high quality services over the long term and we aim to be number one on both. We look forward to attracting people on to our greener, smarter and better value coach services.”
The services are being operated from megabus.com’s base near Brussels, which is the company’s first depot in mainland Europe.
