Red Travel turns 3

Red Travel  has celebrated its 3rd birthday by commissioning a 2017 King Long Coach right in time for the up and coming peak season.

This brings the Red Travel fleet of modern vehicles to 22 coaches in various sizes from 11 through to 51 passenger seats plus access to a fleet of 120 urban style vehicles.

In three years Red Travel has gone from a local Canterbury focused business to a major player in the tourism, charter and conference market throughout the South Island.

"We are delighted with the expansion of Red Travel over the past 3 years. Within this short time frame we have increased the touring and charter fleet from 4 to 22 modern vehicles. We look forward to continuing to work with our regional partners across the South Island as we continue to grow our business in support of the industry while providing a professional, friendly Red Travel experience."

Paul McNoe, Chief Executive, Red Bus
