It is the best bus company I have ever ride with. The sits were incredible. Great driver.
PS. At the end of the trip somebody left a pink backpac on the bus station were we were drop off. I gave it to thw bus driver.
Unfortunately my trip start kind of uncomfortable, once I board bus at tampa turn head light on to read book through out the trip, however was told by driver that he expect for me to turn light off asap because will distract him while driven to have that light on, I turn my light right away for the whole trip to avoid any distraction to the driver, however I was seating three rows from front entrance, making me feel so unsecure due to the darkness of the cabin, arrive into orlando ahead of schedule we had over and hour lay over, 30 min before departure we were told we have another hour delayed, no reason was given, my schedule was from tampa orlando Miami, after board in orlando we were told now we will stop at ft lauderdale, making more inconvenience after all the delays and inconvenience, my arrival schedule was at 420 however end up getting around 630am, two hours delayed, I could understand inconvenience may happen, the way this situation was handled was very unprofessional, I tough greyhound was more profecional ethnic company, I do not judge the passenger but just the way company is handle the communication between the customer and ground employees, I would have to think before take a desicion of use your service again or recommend it to friend and families, I wish I could have u a 5 start, but honestly don't meet my expectations, customer service is the most important in any corporation, my personal opinion after service received , is not acceptable
Our experience was quite unfortunate. We experienced a power failure the night before an early bus trip, and no one got to sleep until 2:30am, so we all slept through our alarms. Our problem, not theirs. We received a courtesy call from the service person at pick up time and told him that my son would miss the bus from Tampa to Miami. Then, after my foggy brain woke up, I called back to see when and where the next stop on the line was...gee, maybe we could still intercept! Indeed, I talked with the same person, asked the question, told him my son had missed the early bus and specifically asked when and where the next stop was, and asked if we would have to repay the cost of the ticket. So I thought he understood we would be there. We drove to the stop (Ft Myers) and arrived 20 minutes early. Waited until the pick up time, no bus. Called back, and was told the bus came through 30 minutes before the pick up time he had given me. Then he said "we tell people to be at the stop 30 minutes before the pick up time". Well, that would have been really helpful information to have give me earlier. It was a long car ride to Miami (but at least it was quality time) and back. And a wasted $50, for lack of communication.
I’ll start with saying the driver was VERY nice and made every effort to make it a good experience. However, there were several problems with the trip. First, apparently I was not on the drivers list even though I had a valid ticket. Thankfully in the confirmation email the customer service number they provided went directly to the driver so he was able to turn around and come pick me up. If it wouldn’t have been for that, I would have not been picked up. Secondly, we were not in a bus but instead an unmarked minivan. As a first time Florida Red Line customer, it was a little sketchy to get in a van that I had no idea was even the correct vehicle. Also, the back door of the van did not open so the driver had to load all the luggage through the side doors. Apparently, the van was hit last week and that is why the door doesn’t open. Overall, i was very impressed with the driver but the company has some things they need to work on to better their quality of service.
