  • Luxe bus service to run between OKC and Dallas

    Vonlane, the popular luxury bus line that has been running routes between key Texas cities, will add service between downtown Oklahoma City and Dallas starting in January.

    The move will coincide with the decision by Southwest Airlines to drop non-stop service between the two cities.

    “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. 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.” said Alex Danza, Founder & CEO of Vonlane in a press release.

    Vonlane refers to itself as a 'private jet on wheels', with leather seats, on-demand digital media, free Wi-fi and snacks and on-board crew service.

    Fares will be $99 one-way or $198 roundtrip. Terminals will be the OKC's Downtown Sheraton at 1 N. Broadway and the Doubletree Hotel across from Love Field in Dallas. They do not charge for baggage.

    The 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 2014 and markets itself to leisure travelers and business people who want to use their travel time productively. It currently serves Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.
