The long-distance bus company Flixbus will reactivate its domestic service on March 25, 2021 on some international routes. For the time being, they want to serve around 40 destinations within the Federal Republic of Germany. The comeback of the Flixtrain trains has also been announced.
The green-painted coaches stood still during the first lockdown last year. In the summer of 2020, numerous routes were operated again, but operations were discontinued again in November 2020. The comeback announced for Christmas 2020 was canceled at short notice with reference to the call by the German government that unnecessary travel should be avoided.
The Flixbus route network is to be ramped up slowly. In the first phase, large cities such as Frankfurt and Munich will be connected. Some international routes are also being offered again. The company expressly points out that the entry and quarantine regulations also apply to passengers in the coach.
FlixTrain also resumed operations. At the latest at the start of the summer holidays in the first federal states on June 24, 2021, the green trains will return to the rails. Depending on the development of the situation, it is also possible to start FlixTrain operations earlier.
