OKC to get ‘private jet on wheels’ bus service in January

Vonlane, the Texas-based premium transportation company, announces its first entry into another state with the launch of service between Dallas and Oklahoma City. Beginning January 6th, business and leisure travelers will have a new option with Vonlane’s daily direct motor coach service.

“When Southwest announced that they were ending non-stop service between Dallas and Oklahoma City, we knew that we needed to fill the void as quickly as possible,” notes Alex Danza, Founder & CEO of Vonlane. “Adding this route was always in our plans, but when we realized that travelers would be left without a direct option, we kicked into high gear to ensure service was in place on January 6.”

Vonlane’s signature experience—including a spacious cabin, leather chairs, more than 350 hours of on-demand digital media, complimentary Wi-Fi and snacks, and on-board crew service—has created a loyal following of travelers throughout Texas. “We’re so excited to bring Vonlane to a new market and introduce Oklahoma City passengers to a ‘private jet on wheels’ experience,” says Danza.

Vonlane’s Oklahoma City terminal will be at the Sheraton Oklahoma City Downtown Hotel located at 1 North Broadway Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73102. Vonlane motor coaches will depart and arrive in Dallas at the Doubletree Hotel across from Love Field.

Fares are flat-rate $99 one-way or $198 roundtrip service. Vonlane’s schedule for motor coach travel between Dallas and Oklahoma City will begin on January 6th.

The debut schedule features 21 departures weekly from each city:

  • Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: Dallas and Oklahoma City at 6:15am, 10:15am, 2:15pm and 6:15pm
  • Tuesday: Dallas at 6:15am and 2:15pm; Oklahoma City at 10:15am and 6:15pm
  • Saturday: Dallas at 9:00am; Oklahoma City at 1:00pm
  • Sunday: Dallas and Oklahoma City at 1:00pm and 5:00pm

Vonlane was launched in May 2014 to give travelers an alternative to the delays and interruptions that accompany short-haul flights and the hassles of driving one’s own vehicle. The coach service has been particularly well-received by business travelers, such as attorneys, accountants, lobbyists, and other service providers looking to bill their time and expertise in a quiet, comfortable, and productive environment. Leisure travelers love the luxurious, first-class travel experience at fares below the cost of commercial air travel.
