In September 2015, the French coach company iDBUS changed its name to OUIBUS. The provider of low-cost intercity bus services is owned by the French national rail company SNCF and operates domestic as well as international bus connections with destinations in numerous European countries. The French OUIBUS network covers larger cities such as Paris, Toulouse and Lyon and smaller cities including Bordeaux, Strasbourg and Tours. Although the name has changed, passengers still benefit from the iDBUS on-board features: The modern and disabled-friendly vehicles are equipped with free WiFi and electric sockets amongst other amenities. The coaches of OUIBUS connect 138 cities in numerous European countries, including France, Germany, Spain and Italy. All in all, the coach company’s network amounts to 1445 bus connections.
Insider Tips: On boarding the coach you do not need to present your ticket – a valid ID is sufficient. Children under the age of 2 only pay half the price when travelling with their parents. OUIBUS offers special discounts for larger groups on bus journeys to the most important cities in France and other European countries. Furthermore, the coach company makes available special offers and deals on selected bus trips throughout the year.
