Megabus In Europe Goes Green
Flixbus, the German leading coach operator, has purchased the retail and coaching operations of Megabus Europe from Stagecoach Group.
The acquisition was signed on 28th June in an announcement in Berlin and includes the Megabus retailing business in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Benelux as well as cross-border services to London. It does NOT include Megabus in the UK which will continue to be owned and operated by Stagecoach Group PLC under the Megabus brand we know today.
Tickets for the Megabus-connections in Europe will be available via the FlixBus online ticket shop and app. Megabus will continue to operate as a FlixBus contractor. Therefore, the number of rides between London and the Continental Europe will increase up to six times per day.
So from now anyone wishing to use Megabus services from London over to Europe, will be directed to the Flixbus booking system/website but for the foreseeable future you may board a blue Megabus or green Flixbus branded vehicle.
If you have a ticket purchased with Megabus for European journeys do not worry, your journey will still be going ahead as planned, you DO NOT need to contact them or make any amendments the services will continue as scheduled.
Your also advised that this in NO WAY affects Megabus' UK operations which are completely seperate and not affected at all by this announcement.
