“We developed Southeast Beach Express to meet the demand for quicker and more convenient access to Gulf Coast beaches, specifically Gulf Shores and Orange Beach,” says Jay Taffet, founder of Southeast Beach Express. “Travel time with us is a fraction of the time spent in the car during the peak summer season, especially with the traffic congestion on I-10 and the beach access roads that can turn a manageable trip into a day in the car.”
