NEW YORK, Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- From a family brand with a century of experience in the travel and design industries comes, LINE, the answer to resounding market demand for a better choice in ground transportation. Trailways of New York, the largest privately held, intercity transit company in New York State, announced today the investment in an unprecedented new venture that could alter the perception of traveling by bus in the United States. LINE, is a business class bus service for travelers seeking an alternative to the status quo of the modern ground commute.
Beginning on Thursday August 16th, 2018, LINE will launch its first business class route connecting Midtown Manhattan with the Hudson Valley, and Catskill Mountains.
Guests will be greeted by an onboard attendant, to whom they'll present a mobile boarding pass that replaces the old-fashioned, easy to misplace paper ticket. Once onboard, guests will have the opportunity to sample complimentary, sustainably sourced, healthy snack and beverage options kindly provided by Harney & Sons Fine Teas, Boxed Water is Better, LOLA Snacks, Nespresso, and more. Boasting a complimentary, industry leading, onboard entertainment system, LINE, features premium Wi-Fi giving guests access to streaming entertainment such as music, movies and TV shows.
"We realized that customers wanted a better way to travel," said Alexander Berardi, Director of Marketing and Business Development. "We were inspired by what companies such as the Hampton Jitney Ambassador service currently offer, and we identified an opportunity for us to do even better for the modern-day traveler vacationing or on a day trip. More than ever, Americans are embracing European views toward travel, and they're eager to do their part to reduce their carbon footprint. We believe that LINE could be the answer to making mass transit a more appealing way for folks to do that. It's arguable proof from an industry leader, that when it comes to transportation, responsibility to the environment, and innovation must meet in the middle in order to achieve cleaner air, a healthier planet, and a better perception of travel by bus."
LINE's chic trailer was shot on site in New York City and in the Catskills. The soundtrack features recording artists HAERTS®, and their hit song, "Wings," most recently featured in the movie Love, Simon. The film can be accessed by visiting the following link: https://ridewithline.com/journal/
