GENERATIONS STRONG

Owned and Operated by the Rogers Family Since 1998

At First Class, our top priority is safety and on-time departures and arrivals. We provide insurance that is double the standard required by the Department of Transportation. We have received the highest rating possible by both Texas Department of Transportation and US Department of Transportation. We are proud of the safety rating our employees have earned. Many First Class drivers have over twenty years of driving experience and have earned perfect safety records. All of our drivers are in 100% compliance with all Department of Transportation regulations. Our motorcoach operators attend regular safety meetings where strict compliance to all rules is monitored and stressed.

LANNY ROGERS, FOUNDER

Lanny Rogers, former owner of Gray Line of Houston, began First Class Tours in 1998. During his ownership of Gray Line of Houston, the management, sales and maintenance staff operated 110 motorcoaches in the Houston area, providing quality transportation in all markets to any destination. First Class Tours had its beginning with one motorcoach—primarily providing transportation to and from the Louisiana casinos. At present, First Class Tours operates a fleet of 61 motorcoaches, most of which are less than 5 years old.

JEFF ROGERS, OWNER/OPERATOR

Our current director is Jeff Rogers, Lanny’s son and confidant. Jeff has built the First Class Tours company from 20 buses to 60 buses, and is busy steering our company in the right direction. We have significantly increased line runs to all casinos, and we’ve doubled our charter bus business. We are working closely with organizations and the community to give the best possible service at an affordable rate. As Jeff says: “We like to have our customers return again and again with bigger smiles on their faces.”
