The service of bus trips Flixbus enters the Russian market


According to Kommersant, the company conducts negotiations with the Russian carriers, counting on a 30 percent share in income of the Photo: pixabay.com Bright green Flixbus buses are well familiar to much who often travel around Europe. "Cheap tickets from five euros" — the website of carrier which has also the Russian version says. Flights the truth inexpensive, the Muscovite Ilya who often went by Flixbus during the training in Germany notes: "Buses at them very convenient. They are two-storeyed. In each Wi-fi bus, there is some special website where it is possible to watch movies, books, games and so on. Trips to Flixbus across Germany on average never were more expensive 45-50 euros. I know that there is couple of unpleasant situations. Two of my acquaintances flew to Germany on a training, wanted to go to some European city by means of Flixbus, the bus at first wrote twice that it is late, and after did not arrive at all. They were not given any compensation for it. All make a helpless gesture and do the most round idiotic eyes". Flixbus is not carrier, and it is rather an aggregator: partners drive buses under this brand, and Flixbus defines routes, sells tickets, trains drivers, equips buses with Wi-Fi-routers and other appliances. The service suggests to sell to the Russian carriers a half of places in buses, counting on a 30 percent share from revenue. However, as Kommersant writes, a number of the large companies already refused cooperation. Carriers are afraid that Flixbus monopolizes the market, the president of NP Uniform Transport System Avtobusnye linii strany Boris Laurent says: Boris Laurent the president of NP Uniform Transport System Avtobusnye linii strany "Their principle — to create monopoly on route network. As shows life, they create big problems in the market, bankruptcy of the enterprises and other. An argument that the market the utter nonsense places accents, of course. As a result all the same passengers suffer. The Flixbus model introduced in Europe will not pass here. Calling on our market will create a destructive situation, in fact, it is attempt of the next repartition of the market". The BlaBlaCar company too announced recently start of service for bus transportations. Meanwhile legal carriers will be able to be placed there free of charge, then — with the commission. Not clearly, whether innovations will be able to get accustomed. In Russia the terms to carriers are traditionally dictated by bus stations which take away from the bus companies the commission to 20% of the sold tickets. The quality at the same time leaves much to be desired: passengers complain of close buses where it is impossible to have a sleep, the bothering series which twist in salon at the nights. If the Russian carrier or service wanted to enter the German bus market, would start up it there? At least, in the strategic industries Germany is afraid of investors, not only Russian, but especially Arab and Chinese. Obviously, the way of Flixbus on the Russian bus market will be absolutely difficult. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
