Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company has resumed bus service on their new route between Hyannis and T.F. Green Airport in Warwick, R.I.
Stops are made in Barnstable, Sagamore, New Bedford and Fall River. The bus service will also offer passengers to and from Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket new options for travel.
“This route gives customers a great choice for travel,” said Winthrop Sargent, chairman and CEO of Plymouth & Brockton. “With faster and more convenient access to T.F. Green airport passengers can take advantage of additional flight options. Our passengers are excited about resuming the route and Rhode Island officials and airport officials are welcoming the new customers as they expand their services and routes.”
The company resumed service between Hyannis and Boston, with stops along the South Shore and then at South Station, and Logan Airport on May 14. Sargent said the number of daily round trips will depend on customer demand; he said that the company’s feedback from customers has indicated considerable interest in the service being resumed. “
We’re ready,” he said, “and we’re excited to be back on the road.”
P&B President John Cogliano said, “Traveling on a Plymouth and Brockton bus to TF Green Airport and Cape Cod is the safest, most cost effective, and greenest way to travel to your destination. Every P&B bus can take up to 55 cars off the road which reduces local traffic congestion, reduces overall gas consumption, and truly benefits the environment.”
P&B passengers will enjoy their commute in the company’s new, state-of-the-art buses. Plymouth & Brockton unveiled their new fleet in early 2020 just before the COVID-19 restrictions began. All initial routes will be via new motor coaches which contain advanced safety measures such as anti-collision technology, as well as amenities including upgrade Wi-Fi and other technology. The motor coaches employ an advanced air purification system and the company employs state-of-the-art disinfectant cleaning procedures. The company invested $14 million in this new fleet of MCI motor coaches as part of their expansion plans.
Tickets and schedules are available either online at www.p-b.com or at any number of the company’s kiosks, including Hyannis, Barnstable, Sagamore, New Bedford, Fall River, and T.F. Green Airport. Passengers are required to wear masks on the buses, in keeping with the company’s strict safety protocols.
