Luxury bus service with $15 fares increases with new stop in Dallas area

Since launching in Texas in 2021, RedCoach, a luxury coach company with reasonable fares, has really taken off. Already present in Dallas, Houston, College Station and Waco, the bus line has now added service to Richardson and Katy, Texas.

The new Richardson stop is located at 170 W Campbell Rd, Richardson, just five minutes from the University of Texas at Dallas. This connects to the downtown Dallas stop, adjacent to Café Herrera and the entrance to the Omni Dallas Hotel, 593 S. Lamar St.

For the uninitiated, RedCoach markets itself as an affordable option for luxury transportation and offers First Class (27 seats), Business Class (38 seats) and Economy Class (56 seats). Benefits for First Class and Business Class include extra legroom (always a plus) and the ability to recline the seats up to 140 degrees.

Amenities include free Wi-Fi, power outlets, onboard entertainment, free snacks and water, and no baggage fees.

RedCoach competes with Dallas-based Vonlane, which serves Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. RedCoach markets itself as an affordable option for luxury transportation.

Prices start as low as $15 one-way (Houston to Dallas and Houston to Austin, for example). A RedRider program allows users to accumulate travel points and score free tickets.
