A coach is a road vehicle from the heavy goods vehicle family made to transport travelers on long distances.
Coaches are also used for interurban connections from train stations or for tourist trips. On shorter distances, they are used for school transport.
A coach can be a double-decker and it always has baggage hold for passengers. It is mandatory to be seating during rides and, since 2003 seat belts are compulsory, under penalty of committing his liability in the case of an accident.
Since the Dion-Bouton steam car from 1898, coaches benefit from technical innovations that make them more comfortable (reclining seats, toilets, AC, tablets, WiFi…) and safer : in order to limit risks associated with alcohol consumption, legislation requires since September 2015 an immobilizer breath alcohol analyser in every coach.
Coaches help to the democratization of trips and have seen significant growth at the time of first paid vacations, and even competes with trains. Superseded by individual cars and high-speed trains, it could be successful again. Coaches prosper where rail connections lack or are nonexistent.
