Greyhound Lines, the bus service that launched nearly 100 years ago, is shifting into the 21st century by adding free onboard entertainment and wireless Internet services.
The Dallas-based company announced Monday the launch of an onboard system that allows passengers to surf the Web, watch movies, listen to music and play games on their own electronic devices.
The service is beginning on the company's premium Greyhound Express service between Dallas and Houston as a six-month pilot program, with an expansion to other areas expected later this year.
After the expansion, Greyhound officials said they may charge for the service but have yet to determine a price.
The Greyhound entertainment system, designed by German-based Lufthansa Systems, offers more than 25 movies, 15 hours of television shows, 100 music albums and five games, plus the ability to surf the Web.
