RedCoach Economy

Pros: The first bus from Tallahassee to Orlando was SUPER clean. I had to sit next to someone. So Safe distance was not practiced. The second bus was really dirty, the window had strange pieces of trash. The floor was clean though. Again no safe distancing again but we got there in one piece. The 2nd bus also had a cracked windshield. That was a bit scary. Cons: Make sure your buses have replacements incase the windshields are crack. Have a mini vaccum or clean up team to suck up the trash from the last crew. Tips: Be prepared to sit next to others. Pack light or store under and in over head bins. Bus is cool temperature.
