The company is set to launch intercity passenger transportation services across India, covering a vast network that includes Delhi, Himachal, Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh. FlixBus aims to connect 46 cities in these regions, offering bus travel options to passengers.

The company pledges to revolutionise intercity passenger transportation in the country by providing convenient travel at competitive prices and adhering to the highest safety standards.

As FlixBus enters the Indian market, passengers in New Delhi, Himachal, Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh can now enjoy a variety of comfortable, safe, and reliable travel options, according to the company.

The network encompasses 59 stops and offers over 200 connections in total, as stated in a release by the company.

In addressing the requirements of Indian passengers, FlixBus is introducing specialized services, including gender-segregated seating, a 24×7 incident response team, a traffic control ward, and 2-point seat belts for every seat. Moreover, FlixBus guarantees the use of high-quality buses, each less than 3 years old and having traveled fewer than 500 km. These buses are equipped with ABS and ESC systems, further enhancing safety standards.

Surya Khurana, Managing Director of FlixBus India, expressed enthusiasm about the introduction of their services in the country. He stated, “We are thrilled to bring our services to India. Our commitment to safety, comfort, and cost-effective journeys positions us as the preferred choice for millions exploring diverse destinations globally.
