German startup Distribusion, which offers a platform for finding intercity bus tickets, has announced that they have picked up a seven-figure investment from HR Ventures, which is the VC company of e-ticketing specialist Hahn Air, and Fruhphasenfonds Brandenburg, an amount that they intend to use to further develop their platform and to consider expansion to new European markets. We first heard from them just a few weeks ago at the launch of the service, but they told us that investment news was on the horizon and here it is. Distribusion previously obtained a seven-figure investment from undisclosed angels.
Backed by this new funding, the company announces that they are planning expansion to the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Poland, and countries in the south-eastern part of the continent. They are also interested in improving their core product, stating that they intend to roll out a platform that will enable end-users to directly book intercity bus tickets through online and physical travel agencies. At the moment, Distribusion says that it is partnering with more than 40 intercity bus operators and provides standardized content for travel portals like Qixxit, Coachfairer, and Waymate.
