FlixBus transported three million passengers to, from and within Belgium in 2019, a 40% increase on the previous year, the German company reported on Tuesday in a press release.
A leader in Germany for long-distance travel by coach, Flixbus has been in Belgium since 2015.
Growth in Belgium has been so strong that there is an evident demand for better infrastructure for long-distance coaches, the company said, disclosing that it is now in discussions with Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges on possibilities for improving bus-stop installations in cooperation with these cities.
At the global level, the FlixMobility group transported over 62 million passengers in 2019, 37% more than in 2018.
The group recently acquired companies such as Eurolines and Kamil Koç, bringing the number of destinations served by its buses and trains (Flixtrain) to 2,500.
