As Novac writes on the 11th of June, 2020, after new concessions to the measures set out by the National Civil Protection Headquarters in regard to bus passenger transport, and in accordance with the conditions of travel within individual European countries, FlixBus is set to re-establish its international bus lines and re-connect Croatia with Slovenia, Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic and Luxembourg.
In this way, travellers will once again be able to travel for either tourist, family or business purposes through one part of Europe as of (as things stand) the 18th of this month.
”Demand for international travel has been shown since the very beginning of the re-establishment of public transport. We’ve adapted all of our departures to the current epidemiological situation in Europe. We will add new destinations and countries as the situation and market demands continue to develop further,” said Ante Grbesa, the director of the FlixBus CEE South region.
As of next Thursday, up to 30 European destinations will be available to travel to once again from the Croatian cities of Zagreb, Split, Sibenik, Zadar, Rijeka, Pula, Rovinj, Varazdin, Osijek, Vukovar and other cities. All available destinations and departures from the 18th of June onwards can be checked via the official FlixBus website or application, from which you can also buy tickets.
Passengers are encouraged to think about their safety when buying their tickets and use the online method of purchase through a free mobile application or website. This will reduce unnecessary physical contact and long queues. Special attention is being paid to enhanced contagion prevention, hygiene and disinfection of the bus area for passengers and drivers, protective equipment for drivers as well as the regulated boarding and disembarking of passengers has been arranged. Preventive protection measures remain in place for the safety of passengers.
“The demand for travel within Croatia still exists, and with daily departures to central and southern Dalmatia, we have added destinations such as Plitvice Lakes, Rijeka, Slavonski Brod and Imotski, while respecting safety recommendations for our passengers,” added Grbesa.
Given the importance of road and bus traffic in the tourism sector, the opening of borders and the relaxation of anti-epidemic measures will ensure a new influx of tourists arriving in Croatia by FlixBus in significant numbers. The increase in the number of tourists arriving from abroad on FlixBus buses, from season to season, has grown by up to 80 percent in certain Croatian destinations.
