FTI Government Affairs is monitoring DC developments related to transportation and infrastructure legislation for FlixBus Inc.

The Los Angeles-based intercity bus company is a unit of Munich’s FlixBus GMbH, which launched in 2013 with the deregulation of Germany’s bus market.

FlixBus expanded to France, Italy, Denmark and Croatia in 2015 and launched in 2018 in the US.

It currently serves 187 American destinations, offering one-way $29 New York-Boston fares and $44 for San Francisco-Los Angeles rides.

FTI Government Affairs managing director Russ Kelley, a former counsel on the House committee on transportation & infrastructure; and John Whitcomb, managing director in FTI’s strategic communications practice’s industrials sector, handle FlixBus.
