Redcoach is always fine, this trip was with an outsourced bus. Bus driver didn't know where to go and took extra stops. Was also super late to Gainesville and to Fort Lauderdale.

The bus was very comfortable, but it showed up late to the pick-up spot and we had an hour delay after that. I was not happy that it took so long

Service was on time, but there was no WiFi on the bus and air conditioning was very strong (ie: too cold).

Leda I.July 1, 2018 | 

Very disappointed/ Sent letter to customer service supervisor

Hayley K.March 3, 2018 | 

My first bus leaving Gainesville was over two hours late. Which made everyone on the bus miss their connecting bus from Orlando. The next one scheduled to Fort Lauderdale wasent for another four hours. Then that one was over an hour late! Let’s just say it was a very long day and wasent worth what I had paid at all!

Great ride, easy comfy and clean.

Awful. The WiFi was not working, and the only response the bus driver had was “can’t do anything about it”. Choosing your seat beforehand is a waste of time; nobody abides by it. Not worth the price; I suggest an alternative such as Greyhound or a train.

The service was generally good. However, the first driver (male)was a pig! He took off the lights and started to drive off before e nsuring that all passengers were seated.

Noah S.December 14, 2016 | 

Terrible service. Rude bus drivers, late at every stop

Annette M.October 14, 2016 | 

It was horrible, when I was in Orlando, they told me that the bus was full!!!
