Emily F.February 21, 2020 | 

I missed the bus, I’d really like my 16 dollars back.

Daniela Z.January 22, 2020 | 

It was an overall good experience

Jesse S.January 8, 2020 | 

I don't know if it's the number system or people just sit were they want. But to many this is my seat. Someone was sitting in my seat but it was fine since we were next to each other I guess

Leah S.January 7, 2020 | 

The worst customer experience I’ve ever had. Big delay at pick up station due to multiple trains having mechanical issues. One hour into the trip the bus broke down and we were told that a bus was on its way but after three hours of waiting there was no sign of a bus. We tried to get off the bus but it was parked on the side of the highway and we were not allowed to get off. I felt extremely unsafe so close to the traffic and the bus kept shaking from traffic but we still weren’t allowed off. The worst part besides being detained was the lack of communication throughout the entire thing and plain rudeness when we asked. We eventually convinced them to let us off and paid 150 dollars to get an Uber. EXTREMELY disappointed!!!

Horrible experience

Marchelle M.November 24, 2019 | 

The bus was late because we got tied up in a car accident, all traffic was stopped until the ambulance left the scene. It wasn’t the driver’s fault. The leather seats are very comfortable along w the leg lifter made the trip easy.

David G O.November 18, 2019 | 

Comfortable bus and driver very helpful. But office staff in Orlando were not very helpful in updating people during the repair, which they originally told us would take 5-10 minutes, but ended up taking almost an hour.

Joohee P.October 20, 2019 | 

The bus was late without notifications and any explanations. Furthermore, in the bus, there was no Wifi connections to.

Zhengkang J.August 16, 2019 | 

Good and cheap!

Elizabeth M.August 12, 2019 | 

Great travel experience

Nicholas G.August 12, 2019 | 

Great service, ran smoothly. If they can drop their prices a little they would be very competitive with car rentals; right now I can usually rent a car for less then the cost of the bus trip.

Glory O.August 4, 2019 | 

Not very clean, but comfortable

Reem D.July 27, 2019 | 

Every thing excellent

Sylvia H.May 12, 2019 | 

I feel that your drivers need to be more courteous drivers. Both your shuttle driver and the bus driver were very ready to lay on the horns and seemed to be a little too aggressive. The shuttle driver seemed a little on the unfriendly side but when we arrived at the station on McCoy, he was sure in a flirtatious and happy mood. People notice things like that

Jean G.March 3, 2019 | 

Very good bus

Bruno Francisco M.December 21, 2018 | 

The staff and reception was amazing, but I’ve got a bad experience during the travel because of the passengers..

Ahmad E.August 23, 2018 | 

you suck. Take Greyhound

Silvia Jessica M.August 20, 2018 | 

The service was good. However, we arrived with a delay.

Alex H.August 14, 2018 | 

Was great. More convenient than grey hound. Comfortable seats. Would recommend.

Tyler S.March 20, 2018 | 

Bus was 20 minutes late

Coletta H.January 30, 2018 | 

A decent ride for the money.

Justin S.January 8, 2018 | 

Bus was delayed for two hours. Very inconvenient.

Marlon L.November 6, 2017 | 

On time is always a great thing!

Sabrina M.October 24, 2017 | 

Very late bus

Carol R.October 13, 2017 | 

The driver and staff were great. The bus was somewhat rundown but got me where I needed to go.

Whitney W.August 28, 2017 | 

I was not told the shuttle from oia was not a redcoach so I missed it and had to take cab. Staff at office was not helpful and said corporate profit was more important than customer service.

Kim P.July 25, 2017 | 

Overall very satisfied. A little late getting out of the station and therefore a little late arriving. Seats were spacious and comfortable and the bus was clean.

Leighton L.June 30, 2017 | 

Good bus service overall

Willie H.June 19, 2017 | 

Very disappointed in the seating!!!. I paid for a seat but didn't get one. Was squished against the window without any leg room.

Brenda W.January 18, 2017 |
