Flixbus is the biggest intercity bus company in Germany. FlixBus focuses on long-distance bus journeys across Europe and has several routes that depart from the UK. In 2015, the two largest bus companies in Germany consolidated, meaning that the company operating under the Meinfernbus FlixBus moniker have changed their name exclusively to "Flixbus". At the time in 2015, it was formed out of the biggest company at the time "Meinfernbus" and the second biggest bus company "Flixbus". Both companies were founded just a few years before the liberalisation of the German bus market. Since then, FlixBus has continued to expand, both within Germany and abroad, so that now more than 20 million passengers travel throughout Europe on their buses each year.
In order to provide an even better service and even more connections the two bus companies have now merged for FlixBus services in continental Europe. This means over 300,000 daily connections to over 2,000 destinations throughout Europe due to FlixBus acquiring Megabus Europe which includes Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Benelux.
