FlixBus has been operating in Ukraine since 2019, serving 29 Ukrainian and 70 international destinations in 8 countries. “Our Ukraine Flix-teams, located in Kyiv and Kharkiv, counts 32 employees with whom we are in continuous close contact, helping them and their close ones in any way possible” explains FlixBus.
Since 25 February 2022, FlixBus has already been offering additional connections from the Polish-Ukrainian border to provide people with even more travel options. FlixBus’ outreach team is on the ground to help people arriving from Ukraine in Przemyśl, Poland, before continuing on.
On Friday, March 4th and Saturday March 5th upon the request of United Nations, FlixBus together with its bus partners has provided humanitarian transport support for 500 children and their minders. The groups of children were brought to the Polish-Ukrainian border from orphanages located in high risk areas in Ukraine, including Kharkiv and Odessa.
In total, 12 FlixBus buses were provided to transport them from Dorohusk further to Poland. All of them are now in a safe place.Flixbus

FlixBus is offering free rides for refugees from Bucharest, Przemyśl and Rzeszów. 1,000 free rides were collected within the first 15 hours through an employee initiative and doubled by the FlixBus management. This corresponds to around 40 buses. Now the number has already multiplied. “We are monitoring the situation closely and if necessary we will increase the number of tickets and journeys” says FlixBus.
It is possible to apply for a free ride via an online tool that has been created for that cause.
