Eurolines is a coach (long distance bus) organisation. It operates a transnational intercity routes network, connecting over 500 destinations, covering the whole of Europe, plus Morocco. Rather than being a single company, Eurolines is a network of co-operating bus companies from all over Europe, offering partially integrated ticketing and extensive connections. For example, in Great Britain Eurolines services are operated by the National Express Group, in Northern Ireland by Ulsterbus, and in the Republic of Ireland by the semi-state bus company, Bus Éireann. Eurolines headquarters are based in Brussels. Some particular Eurolines operators choose to compete on certain routes rather than complement each other
Due to its decentralised approach, standards of service vary between countries. In some parts of Europe, notably the Baltic states (operated by Lux Express) and former Yugoslavia (operated by Lasta Beograd, Centrotrans, and others), Eurolines is a major method of travel between neighbouring countries. In other parts of Europe, international rail and air travel are more common and Eurolines coaches occupy a niche market of mainly overnight links.
Eurolines sell passes for unlimited travel between 45 main European cities for either 15 or 30 days under the name Eurolines Pass.
