There is now a new way to get from Tucson to Las Vegas, and it is called FlixBus.

The company expanded it's operation from Europe to the United States, and kicked things off on May 31. As of right now, riders can get to 20 different destinations in California, Arizona, and Nevada. Some of the bigger cities include Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.

"The whole experience, you take every small part and you make it a little bit better," Pierre Gourdain with FlixBus said. "It's easier, quicker, and cheaper to buy your ticket, and you have your ticket on your phone."

FlixBus offers e-ticketing, free Wi-Fi and power outlets at every seat.

The U.S. is now the twenty-eighth country FlixBus operates in. Gourdain said they got great feedback from American travelers in Europe, which is why they felt it was time to give the American market a try.

"When we heard this, we said hey, why didn't we launch in the U.S. in the first place?" Gourdain said. "That would have been the perfect market for us."
