FlixBus is currently going through a phase of rapid expansion throughout in the UK. Richard Sharman visited London to speak to Managing Director Andreas Schorling about the very latest developments

It is hard not to notice the exuberant green livery of FlixBus becoming an ever increasing sight on the motorway network of the UK right now. So this seemed like perfect timing to talk to Managing Director of FlixBus UK Andreas Schorling about what is new on the UK network, now and in the coming weeks.

More domestic and Scottish services

On 22 June FlixBus increased its customer offering for coach services within Scotland and to and from England. The enhanced services and network mean that FlixBus’ offerings in Scotland have increased five-fold compared to last August, in addition to adding extra destinations through new routes to and from England.

Passengers are now able to find overnight journeys from Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Dunfermline and Edinburgh to London, as well as Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham and Leicester. The latest route added to the network from the same date is the only coach service offering a direct route between Aberdeen and London; National Express no longer reaches so far north, whilst passengers using megabus services will need to change in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

A second new service also began on the same day between Glasgow and London, connecting Carlisle, Leeds and Sheffield, in addition to the new Glasgow to Bristol service launched last month. FlixBus has also added more journeys to its Scottish routes between Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Dunfermline and Edinburgh, as well as Perth, Stirling and Glasgow, on its dedicated Scottish network.
