#CoronaUpdate with Flixbus: “It’s a Really Difficult Situation for Us”

Not long ago, the green buses of the Munich mobility company Flixbus were a common fixture on the road. In the wake of the corona crisis, the company had to stop operations and have only just recently been able to cautiously get going again with a new hygiene concept and a limited bus schedule. Co-founder and Managing Director André Schwämmlein talks about where his company is headed in our #CoronaUpdate.

Flixbus has been on the market since 2013 and has developed into a major player in the global mobility industry. The Munich-based company offers bus connections in 31 countries worldwide. Under the Flixtrain brand, the company also offers trips in green trains.

But it all came to a halt on March 18th. The company had to completely stop operations due to corona. Since last Thursday, the green buses have been back on the roads of Europe – however only to nearly 50 destinations in Germany. That is more or less equivalent to the network that Flixbus started with back in 2013.

Flixbus: “We’re in an industry that has been hit extremely hard by corona”

Together with its SME partners who operate the buses, the Munich company has developed a hygiene and safety concept allowing them to get back up and running again. Schwämmlein shares more details in our #CoronaUpdate video.
