Only two months after launching its service in Serbia, bus carrier FlixBus, will have four daily departures for Budapest from Novi Sad and Belgrade as of 3rd October this year.
This was confirmed at a conference held in the Science and Technology Park in Belgrade. Currently, FlixBus services only Belgrade-Zagreb and Belgrade-Ljubljana routes.
This German company, founded in Munich in 2013, arrived in the Serbian market in July, in cooperation with Sirmiumbus from Sremska Mitrovica and Fudeks from Belgrade.
“After researching the market, we found that these two companies met the high standards set by FlixBus, both in terms of the buses and the drivers, but also when it comes to recognizing our vision. In the future, we will look for partners who recognize the importance of passenger safety and digitization, first and foremost,” Dean Cebohin, Business Development Director for FlixBus CEE South (former Yugoslavia and Albania), told eKapija.

FlixBus had been working for three years on preparing for the launch in Serbia which is now the 25th country that belongs to the FlixBus network. The company currently services close to 2,000 destinations.
The buses used in Serbia are two years old. Each bus has more legroom between the seats, electrical sockets, free Internet, free luggage, and passengers can cancel or change reservations up to 15 minutes before the departure. The five FlixBus buses (operated by Sirmiumbus) are also equipped with wheelchair ramps.
Tickets can be booked and purchased online, as well as in one of 250 outlets.
