FlixBus Returning to Croatian Roads, Passenger Instructions Published

As of the 11th of May, the popular FlixBus will be active on Croatian roads once again, connecting Zagreb, Varazdin, Zadar, Biograd na moru, Trogir and Split.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 7th of May, 2020, following the relaxation of the anti-epidemic measures put in place by the National Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia and the adoption of new measures, as well as new instructions on behaviour in public and inter-county passenger transport, FlixBus will return to Croatian roads in a few days.

FlixBus will only be travelling within the borders of Croatia until further anti-epidemic measures are announced.

''Our goal is to continue to provide a green and affordable travel service to everyone. We'll adapt to the current situation in order to transport our passengers comfortably and safely to their destinations, and we'll begin with operating within the borders of the Republic of Croatia,'' said Ante Grbesa, Director of FlixBus CEE South region.

FlixBus will return to Croatian roads with its domestic bus partners, connecting Zagreb, Split, Varazdin, Gospic, Zadar, Posedarje, Bibinje, Sukosan, Sv. Filip i Jakov, Biograd na moru, Kastel Sucurac and Trogir, respecting all safety measures put into place during the coronavirus epidemic.

Passengers are encouraged to think about their safety when buying their tickets and use the online way of purchasing them through a free mobile application or via the company's website. This will reduce unnecessary physical contact and long queues. Special attention is being paid to enhanced hygiene and to the disinfection of the bus area for passengers and drivers, protective equipment for drivers has been made available, as has the regulated boarding and disembarking of passengers.

"The safety of passengers and drivers is paramount at the moment. Therefore, we immediately closed the sale of the first row of seats to be able to protect the driver, and we're distributing passengers according to the instructions placed diagonally to the seats. Drivers are obliged to wear masks and gloves as well as disinfect their space, while passengers are recommended to wear their own masks for additional protection according to the given instructions and measures,'' added Grbesa.

Further preventive protection measures relate to the disinfection of the bus that will be performed at the end of each journey as well as the placement of disinfectant that will be available to all passengers upon entering the bus area.

In addition, passengers will enter the bus via the back door, passenger tickets will continue to be registered without physical contact via QR codes and through the use of the mobile phones of drivers, and toilets in the buses will be closed for use until further notice.
