Luxury bus links Tucson, Mexico

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The head of a luxury bus company is hoping a new service between Tucson and Mexico will foster better border relations.

Tap Royal CEO Sergio Barragan Colina tells the Arizona Daily Star the Old Pueblo seemed like a natural destination for his bus line.

The bus caters to Mexican travelers and makes stops in Mexico City and Hermosillo, Sonora.

Service in Tucson, which started last week, will include four pickups and four returns each day from the Placita del Rio Shopping Center near Interstate 19 and Irvington Road.

Fares range from $25 to $200.

Amenities on the luxury vehicles include two bathrooms, Wi-Fi and electrical outlets.

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild says the company's presence will help boost tourism to his city.
