The Coachman [1] is a coachman who works around Central Park.


After Vinz Clortho succeeded at possessing Louis Tully's body at the Tavern on the Green, he wandered aimlessly throughout Central Park in human form. Vinz, in search of his partner Zuul, began speaking to a horse asking if it was the Gatekeeper. The Coachman wondered why Louis was talking to his horse (but seeing a potential customer), said the horse's responsibility was to pull the coach; if Louis wanted a ride, then speak with him. Vinz flared his red eyes at him and ran off in a rant, knocking over a woman's bag. The Coachman simply commented, "What an asshole."


  • In the September 30, 1983 draft, on pages 79-81, Louis/Vinz asks the Coachman if he's the Gatekeeper and the Coachman sarcastically answers he is the Governor of New Jersey. Louis/Vinz glares at him then his eyes light up then he runs off.[2]
  • In Ghostbusters: The Supernatural Spectacular, the Coachman was named Jerry Linz. [3]
