New umbrella brand: FlixMobility is now called Flix
+ Change of legal form to SE completed
+ FlixMobility is now Flix and combines FlixBus and FlixTrain under a new umbrella brand
Munich, April 14th, 2022 – FlixMobility is now called Flix. With the change in legal form from a GmbH (limited liability company) to an SE, the mobility provider is introducing a new global umbrella brand, under which two sustainable modes of transport are combined: FlixBus and FlixTrain. By shortening the name, the core values of the product and the company are emphasized even more. Flix stands for smart, sustainable and easy to use mobility.
New name for a familiar vision
Providing sustainable travel options for people around the world has always been the driving motivation for the founders of Flix. The new umbrella brand now stands united for green mobility on road and rail. "Our DNA is green! That doesn't just apply to our products, it applies to the whole company," says André Schwämmlein, CEO of Flix. "Booking on our website or app is as simple as the name. We want to show how the future of sustainable and smart mobility looks like. In Germany and worldwide."

Flix is pioneering the public transport sector by offering climate-friendly alternatives for convenient and affordable travel via the FlixBus and FlixTrain brands. Thanks to a unique business model and innovative technology, Flix has quickly established Europe’s largest long-distance bus network and swiftly moved on to a global expansion including the United States and Brazil. As a trailblazer for sustainable traffic FlixMobility operated the first green long-distance trains in 2018, initiated a pilot project for all-electric long-distance buses in 2018 and launched EU’s first biogas-powered long-distance buses in 2021.
While Flix handles technology development, network planning, operations control, marketing and sales, quality management and continuous product expansion, trusted Flix-partners maintain the daily route operations. The unique combination of technology start-up, e-commerce platform and classic transport company has positioned Flix as a leader against major international corporations, permanently changing the global mobility landscape.
