A European startup called Flixbus which doesn’t own busses, but ties individual bus company operators together in a bus route network is entering the US market in California this summer. Flixbus allows bus operators who operate Flixbus routes to retain 75% of ticket receipts while they handle online ticket sales, scheduling, and customer service. The European company showed a profit for the first time last year. Flixbus will be competing with Megabus and Greyhound, as well as other operators in the West and Southwest US market.
