FlixBus, a new bus service in Canada, is offering customers fares under $10 this week, and you can actually get pretty far.

Last week, the German company announced that it would be expanding to Canada, offering a special $4.99 rate on some trips booked between March 24 and April 6 on express routes between Toronto and Ottawa.

The service will also offer cheap trips between Toronto and Niagara Falls and between Toronto and Waterloo. Some trips also include stops in St. Catharines, Kitchener, Guelph and Mississauga.

"FlixBus' goal is to provide you a convenient, affordable and easy to use bus service. We always offer the best deals, plus a safe and pleasant travel experience," the company's website says.

Not only is the bus service affordable, but it's also pretty tech-enabled. Every trip features free Wi-Fi, and all seats are equipped with power outlets.

"Ontario is a dream bus market with some of North America's most vibrant cities and we are immensely happy to begin building connections here," said Pierre Gourdain, managing director of FlixBus North America. "We also hope the service will offer Ontarians a financial reprieve in a context of rising gas prices with a green mobility alternative to help riders rediscover this wonderful province."

The Ottawa-Toronto route is set to run from Thursday to Monday, with one trip in each direction per day. The Niagara Falls-Toronto and Waterloo-Toronto routes will run a daily service each way, with service doubled on Thursdays through Mondays.
