Royal Sprinter, a fleet of Mercedes vans will introduce a luxury van that will connect Washington D.C. with New York City (NYC). The communication between the two cities was limited by Amtrak, several airlines and a handful of bus companies, the luxury van will hopefully provide some solace to the discreet travelers.
The custom-designed and built to exact specifications to exude an atmosphere of optimum relaxation and luxury and will be launched by April 11.
Each van can hold up to eight passengers and each passenger is seated in a “diamond-quilted black leather seat.” The seats are placed on an angle so there’s no one directly in front of or behind any passenger.
The seats also recline and have leg extensions. Each seat has a 7-inch flat screen TV with DirectTV, a power outlet and tray table. There’s free Wifi and complimentary water.
There are two daily departures from each city. The vans leave from Park Hyatt Washington and Embassy Suites at the Chevy Chase Pavilion in D.C. and the Loews Regency Hotel in Manhattan.
And now the cost: $90 each way, less than Amtrak’s Acela Express, but more than the average cost on the Northeast Regional.
Though more expensive than Vamoose Gold Bus and other companies like BoltBus, Megabus and Greyhound which have lower fares but do not provide the same luxuries as the Royal Sprinter. Each passenger is allowed to carry not more than 50 lbs of luggage and another snappy luggage just of the size of the overhead storage bin.
Royal Sprinter, is an efficient luxurious mode of ground transportation that will take less than 4 hours to complete its trip. However, the company feels that delays due to heavy traffic, road accidents or weather conditions which are beyond the control of the company will have to be excused. 10 minutes stops will be allowed along the way.
