Getting to the Florida Gulf Coast University

Whether you’re travelling to the Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) as a student or to visit a student, RedCoach makes it easy to enjoy the entire trip.

Sit back and relax in our spacious seating arrangements as you travel, so when you arrive at the university you’ll be rested and ready to go.

We even offer FGCU students a special discount to make the journey more affordable. All you need is your valid student ID to be eligible for 10% off the normal fare.

If you are over the age of 13 and have a valid student ID, you can save up to 10% on your RedCoach bus tickets.

The process is simple. When you want to get your student discount, just follow these steps:

  1. Send an email with a picture of your student ID and your phone number to: [email protected]
  2. Within the next 48 hours, you will receive a confirmation email with your personalized discount code.
  3. When you purchase your tickets, you will come to a page for “Passenger Information.” Here, you can change the “Ticket Type” from “Adult” to “Student.” A new field will appear on the page where you will enter your code.
  4. Watch the 10% discount appear in your shopping cart.

The FGCU campus is a beautiful place, with almost half of its 800 acres set aside as preserved or restored nature. Some of the student housing locations are even situated right next to a huge lake. (How often do students get to have lake-front property?)

This is one of the newer colleges in Florida, and it was established in the early 90s here in Fort Myers. It didn’t take long for it to start growing and attracting new students, and it currently offers 58 undergraduate degrees, 26 master’s degrees, and a number of doctorates and graduate certificates.

Never Miss a Home Game

The FGCU Eagles have been developing a great athletics program over the years, and you can support your team by travelling on a RedCoach bus to all the home games.

Whether you’re headed to Alico Arena for men’s or women’s basketball or following the baseball team at Swanson Stadium, we make the trip comfortable and convenient. You don’t have to miss a single game – and you also don’t have to worry about frustrating traffic or packed parking lots. We’ll take care of that part for you.

The RedCoach Travelling Experience

We’ve designed a true luxury travelling experience, so whether you’re escaping the academic pressures for a day or two or returning to the campus after an extended visit with the family, we’ll get you to your destination as comfortably and effectively as possible.

You can spend the trip resting in our oversized seats that recline up to 140 degrees or stream your favorite shows on our free Wi-Fi system. You can even keep working on that paper that’s due when you get back.
