McGill's Partners With Flix for New Scottish Route

FlixBus will work in partnership with McGill’s to provide daily service to and from Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and Aberdeen four times a day.

The green coach operator, who provides passengers with journeys to 2,400 destinations in 40 countries, has revealed it will begin its new network serving Scottish cities four times a day. FlixBus’ new venture will provide daily connections to and from Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and Aberdeen.

Andreas Schorling, Managing Director of FlixBus UK said: “We have made no secret that we want to be the biggest coach brand in the whole of the UK, and our launch in Scotland is a cornerstone of our growth strategy. We know from our experience of cross-border routes that our service is a natural fit with the Scottish market.”

The eco-friendly transport network will be operated by Scotland’s largest independent bus company, McGill’s, as part of its partnership with FlixBus, which began in 2021.

McGill’s operates several cross-border FlixBus routes to and from cities including Sheffield and Manchester, and recently launched a daily summer service between London, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Ralph Roberts, CEO of McGill's Buses said: “Our established partnership with FlixBus has gone from strength to strength, and we are delighted to be working together with the global brand to deliver this ambitious project and offer high quality transport connections to the people of Scotland.”
