About 10 years ago Flix was a scrappy German mobility start-up and today they are the market leader when it comes to bus and train travel (FlixBus and FlixTrain). Along with revolutionizing bus and train travel with helpful features Flix also leads the way in eco-friendly initiatives.
For example, “In 2018, FlixBus launched pilot projects with the world's first electric long-distance buses in France and Germany. Since Feb 2020, a FlixBus powered by solar cells has been operating on the route from Dortmund to London (via Eindhoven, Antwerp, Bruges and Calais), reducing CO₂ emissions by an average of 7% even in the first few weeks.”
FlixBus recognizes that “Traveling by bus is climate friendly, but not 100% CO₂ neutral. For passengers who are willing and able to go the extra mile, we offer the possibility to offset through the most credible UN Gold Standard projects in the Global South and at the same time to shape the future of sustainable mobility in the cities and communities we live in.”
