Peter Pan Bus Lines and Trailways Form Strategic Partnership to Enhance North American Travel Options


Peter Pan Bus Lines and Trailways, North America’s largest and oldest network of independent motor coach operators, have announced a strategic partnership effective immediately. This collaboration is designed to broaden travel options by offering more reliable, convenient, and affordable ground transportation to a wider array of destinations.

This partnership will integrate Peter Pan destinations into Trailways.com and Trailways.ca, while many Trailways destinations will be added to PeterPanBus.com. This integration expands the selection of routes and services available to travelers, making accessing major cities and rural areas easier.

Just before the busy July 4th holiday weekend, the companies introduced overnight services connecting major Canadian cities like Toronto and Montreal with key US cities, including Boston, Providence, Hartford, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, DC. This initiative provides travelers with new overnight journey options and underscores both companies’ commitment to enhancing cross-border connectivity.

One of the most significant aspects of this partnership is the restoration of transportation services to rural communities that have been disconnected since the COVID-19 pandemic. The alliance has reestablished crucial ground transportation links across the Northeast, from the Adirondacks to Cape Cod, revitalizing travel options for these regions and increasing economic activity.

Alex Berardi, President of Trailways.com and Trailways.ca, emphasized the importance of this partnership, stating, “Connectivity is the lifeline of communities across North America. We are so proud of this partnership with Peter Pan and the quality service yet affordable pricing it will bring to so many cities.” Peter A. Picknelly, Chairman & CEO of Peter Pan Bus Lines, echoed his sentiments. He added, “Few family-run private bus companies, like Peter Pan and Trailways, continue to operate regular scheduled route services. We are very pleased to have our companies working together to make travel throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states more convenient and affordable for all passengers.”

The new services are supported by technical integrations from Transcor Data Services of Jacksonville, Florida. These technical integrations ensure seamless booking and travel experiences for customers, enhancing the overall convenience and reliability of the services provided.

Tickets for these new routes are already available. Customers seeking information about service schedules, arrival and departure times, and fares are encouraged to visit PeterPanBus.com, Trailways.com, or Trailways.ca. The websites provide detailed information, ensuring that travelers can plan their journeys with ease and confidence.

This strategic partnership between Peter Pan Bus Lines and Trailways represents a significant step forward in enhancing ground transportation across North America. By providing travelers with more options and better service, the partnership is set to positively impact the travel experience just in time for the holiday season.
