Riding out our new bus

To cap off our most successful semester ever, Bus2alps has rolled out our new wheels, launching the first ever Bus2alps branded bus. In collaboration with our Florence transportation and bus partner, Alterini, we will now be riding to top destinations like the Amalfi Coast, Cinque Terre, and Interlaken, on one of the hottest rides around.

To mark this historic occasion, the Bus2alps team hit the beach in Viareggio for some team bonding. After an incredible night of barbecuing and rehashing all the awesome people we have met this semester, we boarded the Bus2alps Branded Bus for our triumphant return to Florence. Once in Florence, we unloaded at Piazzale Michelangelo, the best viewpoint of Florence, for pictures overlooking Italy’s most iconic Renaissance city, followed by a joy ride through the city.

The new Bus2alps branded bus boasts 55 seats with spacious leg room, 3 plasma screen televisions, personal air and volume controls, personal tray and cup holders, enhanced reclining control, and a sleek design. The bus has been described by those on the maiden voyage as having “similar comforts of an airplane.”

“This is an incredible moment in the history of Bus2alps,” says Bus2alps founder Simon O’Keefe. “It has been quite a journey to watch Bus2alps start as a small operator, to a company that provides discounted group travel for thousands of students every semester. Our first-ever bus marks how far Bus2alps has come.”

Keep an eye out for the stunning new Bus2alps Branded Airplane on Wheels as we ride with hundreds of guests to Europe’s top destinations.
