Some time ago I received a questionnaire from National Express, which concerned the possibilities to improve quality of service. One of the questions concerned the introduction into the carrier's fleet a personal entertainment system. I was very surprised by the question and started searching informations about this topic, and I came across ... Funtoro. Funtoro it is a kind of convenience, or otherwise saying an extra service. Funtoro has already been introduced by Lux Express (Eurolines partner), so the service is not what you should expect something in the distant futu...

I have three messages for you today - two good ones and a bad one, but generally this post is very positive:The good news is that Eurolines reduces travel time for the London to Poland service. Journey times in both directions will improve. No one can deny that since May, when the timetable had changed completely for this line, the journey to some Polish towns and cities takes a few hours less than before. Well done Eurolines for this change! Exactly from 14th September 2012 coaches will depart from London Victoria Coach Station at 0800, so far departure at 0730. The coac...

The question is not meaningless, given the strong competition from budget airlines.
What lies ahead for regular international coach transport? What is going to happen with the coach operators which are present in the market? Who will win the competition; low cost airlines, coaches and buses or high speed trains? We are curious about your opinions. Of course we are not concerned about intercontinental transport, because here the answer is obvious. There is no technical transportation capacity for coaches or trains. We are asking you about Europe transportation only.
In our opinion certainly the transportation system will change in the future. Nothing is certain, but certainly some changes will (must) be implemented to all available modes of transport. Now the UK is dominated by low-cost airlines and certainly the British and European high speed rail network will also garner much attention. People in Britain prefer to travel fast, although more expensively, often not including additional costs such as transportation to the airport, baggage charges, overnight stay at the airport or a fee for parking space at the airport.
By reading many posts on various forums related to travel, our service has observed that the British are very reluctant to use the long-distance coach service. The British nation often associate this form of travel as something unacceptable and do not even take it as an option for consideration.
Eurolines has introduced several revisions to the timetable. The operator is also planning major changes that will affect the connections between Britain and Poland. These changes will take effect in September. Details can be found below. Other changes are also very interesting and we ask you to familiarise yourself with them. France Line No. EF136: A temporary stop will be used in Nantes 9 July to 26 August. The temporary stop is Place Pirmil - quai Grenarie. This information is attached to the timetable. go to the France pageLine No. EN127: This service operates Daily f...
As you know the 2012 Olympic Games will be held in London and across the Great Britain from 27th July to 12th August 2012.
National Express has been planning ahead to make sure its network runs smoothly. Below is a list of London's coach stops and stations for National Express and Eurolines. During the Olympics some of them will be suspended.
The main station - London Victoria Coach Station will operate normally. Nat Exp coaches can drop you off at the station, a short walk from Victoria Underground Station or bus stops. From there, it's an easy onward trip to West Ham for the Olympic Park on the District line. Underground travel in zones 1-9 is free using the special one day. Travelcard included with your event ticket.
National Express also has direct coaches to the Olympic Park from 30 British locations. To book, visit National Express special website
