Anna Helena J.December 2, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

It was very hard for a "foreigner" or a "first-time-user" to find out where the bus-stop was, in Tampa as well as in Gainesville. But once on the bus much smoother than drivning a car.

Daniela P.October 3, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Redcoach sent an email saying they were delayed then an hour before the new time, they sent another email saying they were going to be more delayed by 2 hours. When the time came, the bus was late by 2 hours on top of the original 2 hours of delay.
