I am flight attendant and the flight schedule has been crazy this summer. I took RedCoach as an alternative wat to get to work. The bus is clean, comfortable and quiet, a good value for the price. Riding the bus saves me from driving to Tampa and is a less expensive alternative to renting a car. The driver was courteous & professional and stayed on schedule. I would recommend this to get to Fort Lauderdale or Miami!
