Texas luxury bus line Vonlane's service from San Antonio to Houston will soon operate out of new terminals, the company announced this week.

The high-end service has operated lines with stops in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio for years. Now, beginning September 9, travelers can catch the first-class bus at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio (101 Bowie St.) and arrive at the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria (2626 Sage Rd.) in roughly three hours.

Since launching in 2015, Vonlane has been lauded for its first-class seats and high-end amenities, from on-board attendants and complimentary refreshments to free Wi-Fi, noise-cancelling headphones, and in-route entertainment options at each seat.

The custom-configured coaches feature just 22 first-class seats as opposed to the 56 seats of a similarly sized charter bus, allowing each passenger far more space than one would find on a commercial airplane — not to mention that tickets are competitively priced.

With buses departing four times a day on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, as well as twice on Tuesday, once on Saturday, and twice on Sunday, the service is ideal for both business and leisure travelers looking for a well-appointed transportation option without the cost or hassle of an airline.
