Peter Pan Bus Lines buses are be back on the road serving Boston and other major cities along the northeast corridor as of June 5, the company announced.
“Shutting down was one of the hardest things we have ever done,” said Peter Picknelly, chairman of Peter Pan Bus Lines and third generation leader of the family-owned company. “We also know that our customers have been through a lot as well. So, we are happy to back on the road, serving our customers again, but now using the best cleaning and sanitizing practices in the transportation industry.”
Peter Pan Bus Lines cleans all its coaches every day with some of them being cleaned mid-route.
“No contact boarding means that, once they have purchased their ticket online or through our app, all passengers have to do to board is to simply walk up to the bus and give the driver their name,” explained Picknelly. “In terms of safety and sanitizing, we are leading the industry with our CDC-approved approach. In fact, a hospital recently asked us to clean their staff buses.”
Passengers are required to wear a face mask at all times while boarding, traveling and exiting the bus. Employees have been issued PPE, including face masks and hand sanitizer, to follow the CDC recommendations.
The first row of seats behind the driver will not be open for passengers. Fresh air will be continuously circulating on the bus..
