How to Get to the University of Florida

Your next trip to the University of Florida (UF) can be simple, comfortable, and affordable. At RedCoach, we have created a true luxury bus experience, so you can travel to and from the school and enjoy our discounted rates for students.

We offer students at UF a 10% discount off the normal fare. All you need is a valid student ID when you book your trip, and you can start traveling throughout the state while enjoying our spacious, comfortable seats, high-end amenities, and more.

Take a look at our schedule to find the route that will take you where you need to go.

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 University of Florida is the third largest university in state, based on student population. It has nearly 55,000 students enrolled in an extensive range of programs, including 123 master’s programs and 76 doctoral programs.

And if that wasn’t enough reason for students and their families to take the bus to and from campus on a regular basis, this is the home of the Gators – and that means a lot of people coming into town to catch the next home game.

And don’t forget to explore the area around the university. Gainesville is a beautiful city with a huge variety of things to see and do.

Get to the Next Gators Game

Gators fans take their sports very seriously, and with RedCoach you can enjoy the entire game-day experience with a relaxing trip to the stadium. Forget fighting all the traffic around the game. Don’t spare a thought about finding a parking space within walking distance. Whether you’re travelling to see the next basketball or football game, we’ll make the entire trip comfortable and convenient.

The RedCoach 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.
