New train company starts running
In 2020, Sweden will get a new train operator. FlixBus has been approved to run trains in Sweden with the name FlixTrain.
Next year, trains are expected to start running between Stockholm and Gothenburg and between Stockholm and Malmö. On the latter route, there will also be stops in Alvesta, Nässjö, Linköping and Norrköping.
– These are strategically important points for many travelers. We see a large and growing demand for train services in Sweden. The plan is now to have trains rolling in the first half of 2020, says Peter Ahlgren, CEO of the Nordic region at FlixBus.
FlixTrain will be integrated with FlixBus bus lines.
