Eurolines Unlocks Toilet, Turnover Up

In Q3 2009, route traffic turnover of the Eurolines Lux Express grew 16.4 percent, reports Äripäev, though the company's revenue fell 26 percent. "We attribute the traffic increase to finally unlocking the bathroom on the Riga-Vilnius route," said Eurolines spokesman Priit Rumaljalg. "Passengers miss, we clean, and we've determined increase in revenue is directly related to the amount of urine puddles on the floor." Year on year, the company's traffic has increased 23 percent.
On the horizon is competition for Eurolines. The adult entertainment club, Mister X, plans a Tallinn-Riga route for the spring. Mister X already runs a bus for short routes in Tallinn. "We think we know what businessmen want," says Gianni Gianakonis, spokesman for the club. "And it's not free coffee."


  1. This is priceless. If Mister X did open a bus like that, I'd be first in line. Call it the Naughty Express.

  2. Tallink Romantika should also change their mode of operation. Finns call these ferries 'drilling rigs', but there is a lot of room for improvement.
