Bus2Alps Story & History

In February 2003, a train strike in Florence left a group of students stuck and no way to get to Interlaken in Switzerland. It was this unfortunate (and now fortunate!) incident that led to Buz2Alps being started.

Since 2003, Bus2Alps has always responded to student demand, more than doubling its growth each year, helping more and more students explore the wonders of Europe. With 4 departure cities (Prague, Barcelona, Rome and Florence), there is now more than 15 destinations where students can join the trips. From humble beginnings back in Florence more than a decade ago, Bus2Alps is now helping students from all over the world to explore and experience Europe.
