Jacksonville to Tampa

Traveling from Tampa to Jacksonville or Jacksonville to Tampa? Why settle for another lousy bus trip when you could get to your destination in comfort and luxury?

Whether you’re riding the bus for fun or for work, we make it easy and affordable to travel between Florida’s biggest destinations. You sit back, relax, and enjoy the trip between major city centers on a bus ride that’s efficient, comfortable, and above all, enjoyable.

Red Coach Amenities

At RedCoach, we know that a bus ride should be more than just a way to get from Point A to Point B. When it comes to travel, you should expect more from your bus service than just a ticket, wheels, and a seat.

Other bus services are interested in seating as many people as possible. We’re interested in making our customers happy. That’s why we offer more comfortable seating and more amenities than any other motorcoach company in the state.

Our features and amenities include:

  • Ultimate comfort: Kick back and relax--no, really! No one wants a cramped seat, which is why all our buses have large, spread-out seats allowing you to recline a full 140 degrees (and take advantage of all that legroom).
  • On-board entertainment: Need free Wi-Fi? We’ve got you covered. Connect to our free Wi-Fi and power outlets to browse our entertainment system, watch your favorite shows, finish work, or play your favorite games. No charges, no weak signals, no problem.
  • Utmost safety: We know that safety is the first priority for our travelers, especially if you’re traveling alone. That’s why all of our buses are outfitted with an 8-camera security system and a cutting edge GPS. We know what’s happening on every bus ride, and we always know where our buses are, no matter how far they’ve traveled.
  • High productivity: Want to do more than relax? Our buses only stop at key destinations, so you can continue working hard, playing hard, or napping hard with minimal interruptions.

All in all, we’re not here to just provide a bus ride. We’re here to provide a travel experience.

Stops & Routes

We have a few main routes through every major city in Florida. Even on long trips from Orlando to Atlanta, our buses only stop in major city centers. That way, you have less interruptions, more time on the road, and a quicker route to your final destination.

Route

With that in mind, our buses stop in several interesting places along the way to your final destination, so travelers can make the most of even the longest bus ride. You’ll never be bored on one of our trips.

To make sure that you make the most of your ride, check your route ahead of time to ensure that it makes all the right stops for you.

Along the Way

Where can we take you? Almost anywhere!

Tampa and Jacksonville are two of Florida’s busiest cities, with a plethora of attractions, colleges, and more. Here are a few options in store for you at these great destinations.

Attractions

With its vibrant mix of historic buildings and Cuban and Spanish flair, Tampa is a flourishing city for any visitor to enjoy.

If you have time, visit one of Tampa’s best-known attractions, Busch Gardens. It’s a world-renowned amusement park with everything from exclusive park experiences like Serengeti Safari to live entertainment to animal attractions like Cheetah Run, Jambo Junction, Bird Gardens, and Edge of Africa.

If you prefer something more sedate, check out Tampa’s state-of-the-art Tampa Museum of Art. Set along the Tampa Riverwalk, the museum houses an outstanding collection of modern and contemporary art in facilities that look like artwork in their own right. The museum also offers an array of lectures, educational programs, and workshops to dive deeper into art.

Are you a history buff? If so, Jacksonville is a great destination for you. Make sure to check out the famous Riverside and Avondale historic districts, two of Jacksonville’s oldest suburbs which are now listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

High points include Riverside’s Five Points, a trendy neighborhood with quaint antique shops, bustling cafes, and vibrant art galleries, as well as the Cummer Museum of Art, one of Florida’s finest art museums.

If you love animals, don’t miss the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, which remains one of the city’s best attractions. It houses more than 2,000 animals and over 1,000 exotic plant species, as well as several award-winning exhibits such as the Range of the Jaguar and the gorgeous Savanna Blooms Garden.
