FlixBus, North America’s fastest-growing intercity bus service, is adding new service to its growing Florida network and boosting its existing lines with the addition of intercity bus service to Big Pine Key and Key Largo with service kicking off on Thursday, Aug. 11.

FlixBus’ line allows passengers to travel from Fort Lauderdale Airport to Key West for as low as $21.99. Along one of the most beautiful highways in the United States with sweeping views of the surrounding keys and waterfront areas, FlixBus’ line through the Florida Keys will now include connections to/from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Homestead, Key Largo, Islamorada, Big Pine Key and Key West.  

In Key Largo, buses will stop at 99501 Overseas Highway at a bus stop in front of a Burger King for southbound trips and in front of the Walgreens/Bank of America for northbound trips. In Big Pine Key, southbound trips will stop at the Big Pine Key Post Office parking lot, while northbound trips will depart from a pullover area near the Greyhound bus stop, just steps away from Octopuses Garden & Landscape.  

With plenty of summer travel season still left to enjoy, tourists and locals alike can explore the best their state has to offer and benefit from affordable, convenient and sustainable bus service throughout the Florida Keys.  

FlixBus has collaborated with Germany-based Atmosfair to offer customers the option to travel climate-friendly. Customers can purchase “CO2 Compensation” tickets during booking, thereby making a voluntary environmental contribution. 

The optional cost of traveling green will be added to customers’ ticket prices, approximately 1% to 3% of the original ticket price.

FlixBus CO2 Compensation Ticket donations are financing atmosfair’s UN-accredited Gold Standard Climate Protection Project Cleaner Cook Stoves in Rwanda. These efficient stoves make it possible for people in rural Rwanda to use around 80% less wood than traditional hearths when they cook. The project helps to preserve local forests, the last habitat for mountain gorillas in the world, and contribute to global climate protection.
