"When everything was sold, there remained twelve francs and fifteen centimes--enough to pay Mademoiselle Bovary's coach fare to her grandmother's." (Pg 411)

 

This quote gos on to reinforce the idea that Coaches were used for transporting people and goods from one location to another. The fact that it only cost Twelve Francs and fifteen centimes to pay this fare goes on to show that Coach fares were pretty affordable.
