RedCoach launches luxury coach service in Southeast

Posted on September 7, 2010

[IMAGE]RedCoach-Passengers-full-2.jpg[/IMAGE]RedCoach, a division of Grupo Plaza, one of South America’s largest transportation companies, launched a fleet of luxury motorcoaches in Florida and Georgia.

RedCoach developed a premium service offering with their brand new Prevost fleet of luxury motorcoaches. Vehicles feature cabins comparable to first class cabins on major airlines seat 27, allowing passengers to recline their business class leather seats with foot rests up to 140 degrees.

Every coach provides free Wi-Fi and each seat comes with a lap desk and 110-volt electrical outlet, making it easy for passengers to work while they ride. If work is not on the agenda, passengers can also watch movies shown on each of the motorcoach’s LCD monitors.

“Now, more than ever, everyone is looking for a transportation option to get them to their destinations comfortably and affordably, without sacrificing travel time,” said Kim Hinton, account manager for RedCoach. “Our initial test periods have been incredibly successful and passenger feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The time has come for this service and the Southeast is ready!”

RedCoach currently services regional cities in Florida and Georgia to keep total travel time comparable to transportation by air. Services are now available in eight markets including: Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Gainesville, Tallahassee, Fort Lauderdale, Lake Worth and Atlanta. In addition to these markets, RedCoach is planning to expand service in the near future to Jacksonville and Daytona Beach to meet customer demand.

Each coach operates with a GPS satellite system that continually monitors coach location, position and driver activity, making it possible for RedCoach to notify passengers of any travel delays and updates while they wait at the terminal. For additional security, each motorcoach has interior security cameras that are constantly monitored.

RedCoach is offering special deals for their launch to let passengers experience its service at a low cost. Currently a roundtrip ticket is just $40 from Miami to Orlando, $80 from Orlando to Atlanta and $100 from Miami to Atlanta.
