Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company (http://p-b.com) will resume limited bus service starting Friday, May 14.
CEO Win Sargent said that, initially, the company will offer bus service between Hyannis and Boston, with stops along the South Shore and then at South Station and Logan Airport. The number of daily round trips will depend on customer demand; he said that 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 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 these new motor coaches which contain advanced safety measures such as anti-collision technology, as well as amenities including upgrade 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,” he said.
The motor coaches also have an advanced air purification system and buses are regularly disinfected.
The company invested $14 million in the new fleet as part of its expansion plans.
Tickets will be available May 1, either online at www.p-b.com or at any number of the company’s kiosks, located in Hyannis and South Station in Boston. Passengers will be required to wear masks boarding the buses and the company will follow strict safety protocols.
