New bus line will take travelers from Vegas to LA, Arizona


There will be another way to travel from Las Vegas to Arizona and Southern California starting at the end of the month. And on the first day, services will begin at $2.99, according to the company.

FlixBus and its fleet of green buses are descending on the U.S. after a successful run overseas, and on May 31 will begin offering Las Vegas-based trips between eight destinations in Southern California, including Los Angeles, San Diego and Palm Springs. In Arizona, they’ll travel to seven cities, including Phoenix, Tempe and Tucson.

FlixBus offers e-ticketing, free Wi-Fi and power outlets on each seat. Also, the “Where’s My Bus” GPS live tracking and an automated Delay-Management System will help keep track of bus arrivals.

The U.S. will become the 28th country the company operates in.

To celebrate its first interstate lines, FlixBus today is giving away 200 free trips to locals. FlixBus team members, who will be walking around downtown this morning wearing bright green shirts, will give vouchers to anyone with a valid Nevada identification and who is over age 17.
