The Dallas-based company, which touts itself as providing "a first-class seat for less than the cost of an airline's coach-class ticket," launched last year and is targeting something unique to Texas: four metro areas, each about 200 miles apart, with frequent travel between them, according to the report.

The vehicles - customized to the company's specifications - feature free wi-fi, satellite television and radio and an attendant offering drinks and amenities more common on first-class flights than intercity bus service, the Chronicle said.
