Parlor

The term parlor coach (or parlour car outside the U.S.) was carried over from the railroads. It is a type of passenger coach that provides superior comforts and amenities compared to a standard coach.

Parlor buses tended to be the long-haul buses that traveled the interstates carrying passengers cross-country.
