Dear Erica,

I wish I had known about that; my luggage may not have been lost on my recent 
trip to Fort Pierce; my luggage is still gone.

  Orlando-based RedCoach adds Tallahassee bus service
  Published in the Tallahassee Democrat  September 14. 2010 
  FSU student Roxanne Drevensek was looking to make a quick weekend trip down 
to Orlando and back. She found a round-trip fare of $50 on a new bus service 
making trips between Tallahassee and South Florida, and north to Atlanta.
     Orlando-based RedCoach Inc. has gotten students' attention. While 
Drevensek worked on her laptop computer Friday afternoon, other students 
stepped up to check suitcases and hop aboard at the parking lot across from 
campus on West Tennessee Street.
      Drevensek heard from a friend about RedCoach and the fare was less than a 
typical bus ticket. "This is way better," she said, comparing the competing 
price. "It was almost $80, so this was cheaper."
     RedCoach is operating nine luxury Prevost coaches with 27 oversized 
"business class" seats, 110-volt AC power outlets, free WiFi and LCD monitors 
     "Seeing a bus like this is amazing. I think it's going to be a lot better 
ride," said Ariel Backer, who was going to Gainesville and using the time en 
route to do homework.
     Greyhound's comparable upgraded service is only available on six routes in 
the Northeast. They serve Washington, New York, Boston, Montreal and Toronto.
     Kim Hinton, account manager for RedCoach Inc., said the ability to travel 
and still be productive will appeal to the business market as well. Tampa 
service will be added soon.
     The one-way RedCoach fare from Tallahassee to Orlando, departing Fridays, 
is $25 and the trip is 5 hours, 15 minutes. Greyhound's price for the same trip 
is $59 one way, or $51.92 if the ticket is purchased on the Internet. The 
travel time is 5 hours, 35 minutes.
