RedCoach Amenities

Do you think a bus ride should be more than just a cramped seat and killing time and traffic? Us too. That’s why we do more than just bus rides--we offer more comfort and amenities than any other motorcoach company in the whole state.

You wouldn’t accept “good enough” anywhere else, and you shouldn’t settle for “good enough” for your bus trip, no matter how many miles you cover.

Our features and amenities include:

  • Ultimate comfort: If you’re like most people, a cramped seat and minimal legroom is not your definition of comfort. That’s why all our buses have large, spread-out seats that allow you to recline a full 140 degrees. The better to use all that glorious legroom.
  • On-board entertainment: The license plate game? So last year. We know that you can’t afford to wait for a bus stop, which is why our buses have free Wi-Fi and power outlets so that you can stay connected to the office, play your favorite games, revisit a beloved movie, and so much more.
  • Utmost safety: Luxury should never compromise safety, which is why all of our buses are equipped with cutting-edge GPS and an 8-camera security system. You can always rest easy when you ride with us.
  • High productivity: No time for interruptions? No problem! Our buses only stop at key city centers, which means you can spend more time working and relaxing on your trip and less time dealing with chronic interruptions.

It’s not just a bus ride--it’s a travel experience that you won’t soon forget.

Stops & Routes

We take pride in giving our customers a standout experience. We know that when you book with us, you’re looking for a better bus experience, not just another set of wheels

Which is why we’ve eliminated what you hate the most about riding the bus: all those excessive stops.

Instead of making multiple stops along the way, our buses go directly from one city center to the next. And since we have stops in every major city in the state, you can make good time on your trip even if you’re traveling from one end of Florida to the other. And, yes, even if you’re traveling out of state.

No matter how far you go, we’ve got your back.

And when you’re not at a city center, you can kick back, relax, and enjoy your ride, because the bus won’t stop until the next major city center. Make sure to look out the window--you’ll get a great view of Florida while you ride.

Route

You can see plenty of Florida on our routes (and even a little bit of Georgia on your way to Atlanta!) But no matter how far you go, our buses ensure that you make it there on schedule.

Our currently available routes include:

  • Miami to Tallahassee via Orlando
    • Miami Airport - Fort Lauderdale - West Palm Beach - Fort Pierce – Orlando – Ocala - Gainesville – Tallahassee FSU – Tallahassee Downtown

Before you hit the road, make sure to check your route information and bus schedule. You don’t want to miss the bus, and even if you’re making good time, it doesn’t do you any good if your bus isn’t going to the right location.

Along the Way

Travel is about so much more than getting from Point A to Point B. After all, if you’ve already invested in a luxury travel experience, why not make the most of your destination and visit the best sights that the city has to offer?

Attractions

If you find yourself in Atlanta’s trendy Buckhead neighborhood, make sure to visit the Atlanta History Center. The center seeks to explore all facets of Georgia’s rich history through exhibits, historic homes, and miles of gardens and walking trains. Be sure to stop by the primary facility, the Atlanta History Museum, which explores the region’s history and culture.

If you’re up for a local shopping crawl, visit the Westside. It’s a veritable treasure trove of clothes, jewelry, furniture, and gifts, all made and designed in Atlanta. You’ll find a cluster of boutiques along Howell Mill Road from Westside Provisions District to Marietta Street--take your time to drink it all in.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Well, not so many bears, but you can see plenty of large wildcats in Jacksonville (if you visit Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Preserve). It’s home to lions and tigers, but it also houses lynx, leopards, pumas, foxes, and coatimundis (the last two are considered “honorary cats” by the preserve).

If you’re a science geek, a history buff, or both all at once, stop by MOSH! The Museum of Science and History. Their goal is to make science, history, and innovation accessible to all audiences through a variety of outstanding exhibitions on science and local history. Fan favorites include Brain Teasers and Dinosaurs Unearthed. 

Colleges

College students are a mobile population. But all too often, they think that they can’t afford to visit their friends, stop by for a weekend at home, or take a break from school to visit their favorite weekend getaway.

We’re here to tell you that’s not the case. Several major colleges and universities are located near our bus routes, including:

  • Jacksonville University (Jacksonville)
  • Florida State College at Jacksonville (Jacksonville)
  • University of North Florida (Jacksonville)
  • Emory University (Atlanta)
  • Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta)
  • Spelman College (Atlanta)
  • Georgia State University (Atlanta)
  • Agnes Scott College (Atlanta)
  • Morehouse College (Atlanta)

Best of all, you can take an affordable trip without sacrificing comfort. Because let’s be honest: if you’re sharing a dorm room with three roommates, comfort is a precious resource.

Hotels and Airports

Let’s be honest: if you’re crossing state lines, a great hotel should be high on the priority list. After all, if the comforts of home aren’t available, a hotel with standout service is the next best thing.

But before you stress about finding the right one, take a deep breath. Relax. We’ve got a list of some of the best hotels in Jacksonville and Atlanta alike with luxury services that you’ve come to expect from your travel amenities.
