Since launching in Texas in 2021, RedCoach, a luxury motorcoach company offering reasonable rates, has really taken off. Already boasting a presence in Houston, Dallas, College Station, and Waco, the bus line has now added service in Katy and Richardson, Texas.

The new Katy stop will be located at Buc-ee’s: 27700 Katy Fwy. This joins the Houston stop at the Residence Inn Houston Downtown/Convention Center (904 Dallas St).

Meanwhile, the new Richardson stop is located at 170 W Campbell Rd, Richardson, just 5 minutes from the University of Texas at Dallas.

For the uninitiated, RedCoach bills itself as an affordable option for luxury transportation and offers first class (27 seats), business class (38 seats), and economy class (56 seats). Perks for first and business class include extra legroom (always a plus) and the ability to recline seats up to 140 degrees.

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

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

So far, RedCoach’s nonstop routes in Texas connect:

  • Houston with Austin, College Station, Dallas, and Waco
  • Dallas with Austin, College Station, Houston, and Waco
  • Austin with Dallas, Houston, and Waco
  • College Station with Dallas and Houston
  • Waco with Austin, Dallas, and Houston
