FlixBus, America’s fastest-growing and most innovative intercity-bus network, is returning to Florida. One of the first routes to return is from Fort Lauderdale to Orlando, stopping in Fort Myers, Sarasota, Tampa, Lakeland and Miami. The iconic, bright green buses will give travelers a new car-free, inter-regional option. Ticket prices from will start as low as $7.99 and can be booked via FlixBus’s website or App. Buses on this route will run five days a week with various departures and arrivals throughout the day.
“This spring, we’re all excited to visit family, catch up with friends, or just get a much-needed change of scenery,” said Joanna Patterson, Business Director at FlixBus. “For folks on the Peninsula, we’re looking forward to bringing an easy, affordable, and environmentally responsible travel option much closer to home.”
Lakeland is a complete new addition to the FlixBus network. “We’re excited to welcome FlixBus as a transportation partner offering another transportation option for the residents of Polk County,” said Citrus Connection Executive Director Tom Phillips from Lakeland. “This partnership opens another avenue of multi-modal transportation connecting people from our Gow B. Fields Park and Ride facility to locations throughout Florida.”
The safety and well-being of passengers, drivers, employees, and community is our top priority. We and our bus partners have implemented safety measures such as temperature checks, requiring face coverings at all times, thoroughly sanitizing buses after every trip, and more to ensure a safe journey. More information about the safety guidelines can be found here.
The entire FlixBus network is comprised of and driven by regional bus partners across the country such as Umbrella (Orlando, FL), Escot (Tampa/Orlando, FL) and A1A (Miami, FL). Many of these partners are family-owned so riding with FlixBus means you are helping support these local businesses.
With new buses, free WiFi, power outlets at every seat, carbon-neutral ticketing options, extra legroom, and more, riding in a bus has never been more enjoyable. For more information, visit FlixBus online or download the convenient FlixBus App.
