Arrow Innovates New Luxury Charter Bus

Omaha, NE – A new approach to styling, elevated customization and robust features define the modernized new Arrow Stage Lines Ultra Luxury charter bus. Arrow Stage Lines has kept the essence of the motorcoach’s exterior intact, by maintaining the original exterior styling. However, the inside presents passengers with a different look at Arrow Stage Lines’ design. It enhances the experience with an improved appearance. “It was important to our design team to stay true to the exterior feel of our Ultra Luxury line,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “The interior is where we decided to take the design in a new direction.” The dynamic interior of the 44 passenger Ultra Luxury does not mirror the company’s new standard Kiel seat. Arrow Stage Lines worked alongside Motor Coach Industries to find the perfect seating option. Each seat is lined with plush leather and allows for pronounced legroom and comfort. Each seat features custom A/V options for every passenger. The tray tables, cup holders and tech components blend into the design and maintain the color palette. These in-seat components allow passengers to listen to on-board media, change a media channel, or simply tune out the noise and engage in conversation or enjoy the open road. The most noticeable change is the enhanced rear galley. The motorcoach allows for more room than before, and uses a new, easy to use, eco-friendly beverage service station. Most importantly the styling direction allows for more storage space near the rear of the coach. The Ultra Luxury comes equipped with Arrow Connect V2.0 options, and is stacked with A/V component options. The new coach...
Vader Tour Bus Grows Arrow Entertainer Fleet

Vader Tour Bus Grows Arrow Entertainer Fleet

KANSAS CITY, MO – What happens when luxury meets the dark side? We asked ourselves the same question. The answer is a jet-black metallic coated tour bus named Vader. Vader is the latest addition to Kansas City’s Arrow Entertainer line-up. This entertainer charter bus brings some dark flair to the stage with a sleek, powerful exterior, and interior to match. “It’s a little different from our last few coaches,” said Chuck Gunnels, Managing Director of Arrow Entertainer. “As the brand grows in popularity, it’s important to have a distinct look.” The interior is our strongest design to date. The flawless interior encapsulates a true luxury feel. How would we describe it? Coffee shop comfort meets pristine leather. The dark wood accents, tile floors, and ambient lighting enhance the environment. While the plush black leather seating delivers pure comfort.   We did not skimp on the entertainment factors. Four total flat screen TVs maximize the use of entertainment space in both the front and rear cabin. Surround sound, gaming systems, and Blue Ray players are all standard. Each bunk also includes a universal mount for personal entertainment devices. 12 bunks are pretty comfortable when you have all your own devices and media in one place. “This tour coach is unique in several ways,” said Luke Busskohl, COO of Arrow Stage Lines. “First, it is rare to see an MCI J4500 in today’s production and concert tour market, and the stark black exterior is totally different from our standard tour buses.” The fourth luxury tour bus is designed for those who love a good kitchen area onboard. The kitchen has two...

Charter Bus Tradition Continues At 2016 College World Series

Baseball has always been America’s game. The College World Series in Omaha, Neb. is home to some of the deepest traditions in college baseball history. Arrow Stage Lines is proud to be an important piece of the continuing tradition. Arrow Stage Lines has been providing charter bus transportation for incoming teams for over a decade. Teams are welcomed with decked out charter motorcoaches. Returning teams always have their Arrow Stage Lines’ driver of choice. Each driver takes pride in sprucing up their Arrow Stage Lines motorcoaches in anticipation of each team arrival. “It’s a special time at Arrow when the CWS starts approaching,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “Special operations meetings are held leading up to the event and each driver waits anxiously to see if their team is going to make it.” The company provides athletic charter bus transportation to collegiate teams all across the country, but teams earning a trip to the CWS, are not teams Arrow Stage Lines usually work with. Arrow Stage Lines has played a role in the CWS for over a decade, and was selected for a variety of reasons. The first being superior safety performance. Arrow Stage Lines award-winning superior safety is better than 95% of other charter bus carriers across the nation. This is a big deal in the eyes of the NCAA. Excellent equipment, well-trained drivers, and an elite maintenance program are all factors as well. Arrow Stage Lines charter bus drivers all take on the personality of the team over the course of the event. For some teams this can be over a week in duration, so...
