Luxury Bus Access from Austin to Houston Begins

Vonlane, the “private jet on wheels,” will begin offering luxury bus service between Houston and Austin this month. Targeted to the business and leisure traveler who wants to skip the hassle of air travel, Vonlane’s luxury motor coach service includes large leather seats with ample leg room and a desk-like workspace, Wi-Fi, complimentary refreshments and snacks, noise cancelling headsets, and satellite television and radio. A private, closed door conference room also is available, and each trip includes an on-board attendant. There are only 16 seats on each bus, compared to 56 in a typical bus. Vonlane, which added service between Austin and Dallas in 2015, will price fares around $100. Most travelers will have no baggage check fees, as three bags up to 50 pounds are included with the fare, as is one carry-on bag. Visit for more information.
