Fabulous Coach Lines to provide service for U. of Florida football games

Posted on June 28, 2010

[IMAGE]Fab.jpg[/IMAGE]"The RTS GatorAider," which offers transportation to and from University of Florida football games, will now be known as the Navigator and be provided by Fabulous Coach Lines. The service will offer park-n-ride transportation from the Oaks Mall, Hilton University of Florida Conference Center, The Village Center in Haile Plantation, Tioga Town Center and the southwest Downtown Parking Garage.

Fabulous coaches feature a host of guest pleasing amenities including comfortable reclining seats, footrests, armrests and an onboard lavatory.

"I'm very excited about our new Navigator service. It's going to give people who normally wouldn't be riding in a motorcoach, a great view of how nice motorcoach travel really can be," said Ray Land, president of Fabulous Coach Lines.

Single-game tickets may be purchased at park-n-ride locations on game days for $10 per person, roundtrip payable in cash or credit card. Pre-purchase of Navigator season passes are available and cost $60, offering a savings of $20. Passes are available online at Fabulous' Website. The season pass also includes transportation to Gator Growl, the world's largest student-run pep rally.

Navigator shuttle begins three hours before each home game, allowing riders to arrive early on campus in time for Gator Walk and other pre-game festivities. The last coach to the stadium departs 10 minutes before the game. Returning Navigator coaches will run from the beginning of the fourth quarter through the first hour after the game ends.

Fans can also purchase Navigator's tour packages, which include luxury motorcoach transportation, exceptional hotel accommodations and all inclusive tailgate parties for away games.
