A First: FlixBus To Launch Hydrogen Buses For Long Distance Travel

FlixBus company, which is owned by FlixMobility, was created in Munich in 2011 by three entrepreneurs who wanted to offer sustainable, comfortable and affordable travel.

The company owns no buses and employs no drivers. Instead it offers permitting, network planning, marketing, pricing, quality management, and customer services to regional bus companies, which provide the coaches and drivers and the day to day management of routes.

Today it operates long distance networks in France, Italy, Austria, the Netherland,s and Croatia and cross-border routes to Scandinavia, Spain, England, and Eastern Europe.

After being the first to successfully launch three fully electric buses, they now want to develop the first long distance buses powered by fuel cells, along with Freudenberg technology, to mark another milestone in the history of mobility.

They have already begun talks with bus manufacturers about the introduction of hydrogen models and is also working with Freudenberg Sealing Technologies to test hydrogen fuel cell buses on long-distance journeys. 

The company says its fuel cell vehicles must have a range of at least 500 kilometers with refueling taking a maximum of 20 minutes.
