"We're traveling every week with families seeking a safe, relaxing way to get to their vacation destination.

The product meets EPA criteria for use against SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • Passengers may change their departure date and time with Vonlane at any time at no cost and no difference in fare; full refunds are available if cancelled 24 hours or more prior to departure of the initial leg of the trip.

For families seeking a post-quarantine vacation, Vonlane has introduced the ability to charter an entire coach to transit passengers to and from the beaches of Florida, the mountains of Colorado, or anywhere in the continental US. The whole-coach charter allows families to avoid congested airports and middle seats that come with air travel or public restrooms and unnecessary stops that come with road trips.

"We're eager to welcome our loyal passengers back to their private jet on wheels as well as introduce first-time travelers to our signature experience that provides a responsible, reliable means to travel in Texas and beyond,” notes Danza. "As service resumes, we will continually monitor and modify our response based on guidelines from the CDC and State of Texas and the feedback from passengers and crew. We are also working hard to reopen our popular routes to Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Oklahoma City as soon as feasible."

Riders agree: Vonlane is the most comfortable and convenient motor coach experience in the nation.”

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.

Vonlane and MD Anderson Team Up to Provide Discounted Luxury Travel for Cancer Patients

Patients traveling to and from Houston for treatment from Austin, Dallas, or San Antonio may access comfortable, affordable alternative

The partnership was forged in response to a growing number of cancer patients seeking transportation with Vonlane. Many of these patients have been advised by their doctors to avoid airlines due to immunosuppression following rounds of cancer treatment, which increases the likelihood of patients contracting illnesses from lingering microbes in mass-transit airports or in the close-quarters environment of airline cabins. Patients also say the fatigue caused by cancer treatment makes it difficult to drive or navigate the walking involved in airport terminals.

“Vonlane has become an important part of our patients’ treatment plans in the Texas Triangle. As airline and personal car travel may be too taxing or problematic for some patients, we’re pleased to offer patients a safe, easy, comfortable, and reduced-fare solution with Vonlane,” said Gretchen E. Vaughan, senior director of development for MD Anderson Cancer Center.

“We are honored to partner with MD Anderson and provide their patients with the very best accommodations to and from treatment,” said Alex Danza, founder and CEO of Vonlane. “We’re committed to providing a more comfortable and affordable travel alternative overall and especially for cancer patients in Texas. Our passenger-first culture ensures patients experience the same care and compassion while in transit as they do at home or at MD Anderson.”

The discount program is available to all MD Anderson cancer patients traveling to Houston for treatment from Austin, Dallas, or San Antonio. The reservations are 100% refundable and not subject to cancellation policies. Additionally, for each paying MD Anderson passenger, Vonlane will contribute to MD Anderson’s indigent patient travel program in the form of account credits for the cancer center’s use.

According to John C. Schweitzer, an MD Anderson Board of Visitors member, “As an avid and frequent Vonlane traveler, I readily saw an opportunity to enhance our patients’ lives by making their travel for treatment easier, friendlier, and more affordable. I’m thrilled Vonlane teamed with us to offer a discount for our patients and also stepped up to create a travel fund for our indigent patients.”

“I knew when Alex and Gretchen began collaborating that something good would result. Gretchen is a terrific asset for MD Anderson; I can’t imagine a more effective, respected ambassador for our exceptionally critical health care institution. Alex is a talented businessman and visionary who clearly understands the importance of putting customers first and shares our passion for MD Anderson. They have created an immense added value for our patients,” noted Schweitzer.

Vonlane’s Houston terminal is located in downtown Houston, approximately five miles from MD Anderson’s facility. The coach operates four weekday arrivals and departures in Houston from each of Vonlane’s locations in Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio. Additionally, the coach provides weekend service.

To secure the discount, patients must book directly through MD Anderson’s travel department.

Vonlane Announces Luxury Motor Coach Service between Dallas and Houston

Strong demand from business and leisure travelers prompts expansion to Interstate 45 route

DALLAS, Texas - March, 2015) — Travelers between Dallas and Houston will have a new transportation choice beginning April 20—luxury motor coach service complete with first class seats, ample workspace, Wi-Fi, a conference room and an on-board attendant offering premium cabin service.

Launched in May 2014 with routes between Dallas and Austin, Vonlane was founded to give travelers an alternative to the delays and hassles that often accompany short haul flights or self driving. The service has been particularly well-received by business travelers—professionals like attorneys, accountants, lobbyists and other service providers who bill their time and expertise.

For the new route between Dallas and Houston, Vonlane will initially offer two departures per day in each city. One-way fare that includes all amenities and service is $100. A limited-time $69 one-way fare will be available for travel from April 20 through May 31.

Vonlane will provide travelers non-stop service between Dallas and Houston in about the same time as a commercial airline flight between the two cities, factoring in airport parking, security lines, pre-board wait time, deplaning and entry into ground transportation.

"As soon as we launched last year, we started getting requests to add service to Houston," said Alex Danza, founder and President of Vonlane. "We're so pleased to give travelers the flexibility of productive, convenient and comfortable day trips between Dallas and Houston."

Vonlane offers a first class alternative to regional airline travel that is priced competitively with the lowest coach-class airline fares, half the price of the typical fare selected by business travelers and more cost effective than IRS reimbursement levels for personal vehicle mileage.

"We're helping people reclaim the hours that are typically wasted when flying or driving between Texas cities," said Danza. "Whether someone wants to be productive during their trip or simply relax, we've created the ideal environment and experience."

Vonlane motor coaches feature 16 premium seats, in addition to a 6-seat conference room that may be reserved during the booking process. Business travelers can collaborate in privacy in the Vonlane conference room that is outfitted with three flat panel monitors for laptop projection. Complimentary Wi-Fi, refreshments, noise cancelling headsets, a wireless printer and other amenities are available at no charge. For travelers taking a break from work, in-motion satellite television and radio are available. In addition to comfort features, each motor coach is equipped with state-of-the-art safety technology and an engine exceeding EPA standards for emissions and fuel economy.

Vonlane motor coaches will depart and arrive in Dallas at the Doubletree Hotel across from Love Field and in Houston at the Sheraton North Houston at George Bush Intercontinental. Rental car and other ground transportation options are available at the hotels, which will also offer discounted rates to Vonlane passengers. Vonlane customers will have the option to take advantage of hotel, rental car and chauffeured services offers at their time of booking in order to ensure a seamless door-to-door travel experience.

Vonlane will run from Dallas to Houston at 6 am and 2 pm, and Houston to Dallas at 10 am and 6 pm. At arrival and departure locations, travelers simply need to arrive five minutes before departure, confirm their online reservation with a photo ID, hand their car keys to a valet parking attendant, climb aboard the coach and settle into their reserved seat.

Vonlane expects to add a Houston-Austin route by the end of 2015.
