Want to go to Houston? Got a dollar? That's all you need, according to a new bus line, FlixBus, that is offering 99-cent one-way tickets from Austin to major Texas cities.
According to the bus line, all tickets purchased by April 10 for travel through May 17 between Austin and Houston, Dallas or San Antonio are 99 cents. Ticket prices after May 17 start at $4.99 and vary depending on seasonality and demand. Buses leave from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
One-way tickets from Austin to Fort Worth, New Orleans and Baton Rouge through May 17 are $1.98. A $2 service fee per transaction, not per ticket, does apply, and some dates are already starting to sell out.
"We are eager to get more buses on the ground in Texas," said Pierre Gourdain, managing director of FlixBus USA, in a statement. "Our goal is to continue connecting more communities and get as many cars as we can off the road."
FlixBus USA launched in 2018 and features a fleet of buses that include free WiFi, power outlets at every seat, free movies and more. Learn more about FlixBus and book tickets at flixbus.com.
