RedCoach expands service to Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Fla.


Passengers can now book tickets to and from Jacksonville and Daytona Beach, with service beginning Jan. 3, 2011.


RedCoach, the Southeast-based luxury ground transportation provider, added two new destinations in Florida: Jacksonville and Daytona Beach.

Passengers can now book tickets to and from Jacksonville and Daytona Beach, with service beginning Jan. 3, 2011. Due to its success in 2010, RedCoach has been able to grow from just two destinations to 12 in less than a year. 

Increasing customer demand has allowed RedCoach to add these frequently requested stops, and the company is looking to expand in order to serve more cities in Florida.

“Our passengers have been requesting these locations as RedCoach destinations for quite some time,” said Kim Hinton, company spokeswoman. “In fact, in customer surveys, Jacksonville was consistently at the top when asked which destination should be added next.”

Routes to and from Jacksonville will run daily, and the pick up location will be at the Jacksonville International Airport. Fares between Jacksonville and Orlando will start at $28 round trip. Daytona Beach will have daily departures and arrivals as well. Its pick up location will be off West International Speedway. Round trip fares between Daytona Beach and Orlando start at $25.

When surveyed, 20 percent of RedCoach’s passengers said they would normally use airlines when traveling and more than 50 percent would typically drive themselves but are choosing RedCoach instead.

RedCoach is the first luxury ground transportation provider in the Southeast with destinations throughout Florida extending into Georgia. It currently services twelve markets including: Orlando, Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Gainesville, Tallahassee, West Palm Beach, and Fort Pierce, Buckhead and Tifton in Georgia.

RedCoach cabins seat just 27 where regular coaches seat 56. Passengers can recline their business class leather seats with foot rests up to 140 degrees. Wi-Fi is complimentary onboard, and each seat comes with a lap desk and standard 110V electrical outlet, making it easy for passengers to work while they ride. Passengers can also watch movies shown on each of the motorcoach’s LCD monitors.

Each luxury coach is fully equipped with the latest technology in safety, quality, and comfort in order to meet traveler’s needs. Every 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. For additional security, each motorcoach has interior security cameras that are constantly monitored, according to company officials.
