This morning at 3 a.m, the first Hyannis to Boston commuter bus rolled out of the Hyannis Transportation Center on its way to Logan Airport.
It’s been a long, idle 14 months for the Plymouth & Brockton St. Railway Company, which unveiled a new fleet of motor coaches in early 2020 just before the COVID-19 shutdown restrictions began. Yesterday, at its Plymouth headquarters, the ownership welcomed the re-launch of its routes, which also include T.F. Green Airport in Providence.
All initial routes will be via these new motor coaches which contain advanced safety measures such as anti-collision technology, as well as amenities including upgraded Wi-Fi and other technology.
“We are confident that our passengers will find our new fleet to be a cost effective, faster and greener way to travel back and forth,” CEO Win Sargent said at a media event yesterday at the company’s Plymouth headquarters.
The motor coaches also have an advanced air purification system and buses are regularly disinfected.
Sargent noted that the company has been inundated with interest mainly about its service to Logan.
“The past 14 months have been extraordinarily difficult,” he acknowledged in a parking lot flanked by the new, navy blue buses emblazoned with the company’s new contemporary logo. “We need people to feel confident and get on and ride. ”
