FlixBus, a Europe-based bus company, is soon offering routes in the US for as little as 0.99.

The cheapest routes include Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Los Angeles to Phoenix, Phoenix to Las Vegas, and San Diego to Las Vegas.

You might not think comfort when you think of bus travel, but a European company is headed to the US to change that. Since launching five years ago in Germany, FlixBus has become the largest bus network in Europe, busing travelers to 1,700 destinations in 27 different countries using a low-cost and high-comfort model. Next, it's hoping to make bus travel cool again on the West Coast.

Starting May 15, the company will offer tickets as low as 0.99 one-way on routes such as Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Los Angeles to Phoenix, Phoenix to Las Vegas, and San Diego to Las Vegas. FlixBus utilizes a network of coaches that are owned and operated by independent, local companies in each destination they serve. This way, the company is able to avoid extra costs like paying to park all of its buses when they're not in use.
