TS Travels Group will begin operating the Leeds to London route as of 29 July 2022, adding additional capacity on FlixBus’ routes in time to support passengers seeking travel options amid rail strikes.
The West Yorkshire coach operator will be partnering with FlixBus to expand on its seven day a week service between Leeds, Sheffield and London.
Andreas Schorling, Managing Director of FlixBus UK said: “The need for reliable transport options has never been clearer, so we’re delighted to be welcoming TS Travels Group as a long-term bus partner, to keep Britain moving. TS Travels Group has a keen eye on quality, and a track record of high operational standards, which is exactly what we are looking for in our long-term partners. We look forward to working together and offering passengers more journey options than ever before.”
Taj Singh, Manager of TS Travels Group said: “Becoming part of FlixBus’ rapidly-growing network in the UK is a really exciting new opportunity for us. We have been impressed by the brand’s global success and the attractive partnership model the team is offering, and we can’t wait to get started. We look forward to a long term relationship between both businesses.”
FlixBus is transforming the UK coach market with its tech-first approach to travel, using digital solutions to optimise network planning, operations, marketing and more.
“This summer has underlined how much room there is to innovate in the coach market using our first-class technology, and we are confident that we will achieve our ambition to become the country’s leading coach brand,” said Schorling.
