Why Our Customers Love Us

Can't find a better DC to NYC bus and the price is nice too. No complaints overall. Traveled with about a half dozen drivers over the past few months and I've been impressed!

Washington DC to New York City Traveler

I've taken Peter Pan 30 times and never had a single issue - in fact most of the time they dropped me off early!

Peter Pan Traveler

I rode from Boston to Hyannis and back. The buses were very clean and I felt safe in regards to the pandemic. The driver on the bus on the way down was so professional and courteous!

Boston Traveler

I just wanted to say that Operator David was one of the nicest, friendliest, and most helpful bus drivers I have had in a long time. I have been taking buses most months for the last 7 years from all different companies and he was one of the best. He should be praised for his kindness. You also had good wifi which many companies do not so thank you for that too!

Cape Cod Traveler

Honestly my FAVORITE bus line! Super clean and easy way to and from NYC. Staff is always very kind and helpful (Special shout to Dell and Dennis)

NYC Traveler

Very affordable last minute r/t ride NYC to Philly express - bus stations on both ends with amenities like roofs and bathrooms and coffee. Both directions left and arrived on time.

NYC - Philadelphia Express Passenger

Caught this bus last minute at Port Authority in Time Square. I like that I didn't have to wait outside for my bus! My driver name was so friendly and accommodated me with my bags because I had a baby with me. Their customer service skills were definitely on point! The driver drove safe and got us there on time, actually we were 15 mins early. I will definitely be taking this bus again!

NYC Traveler

I don't know when I will again. What I can promise is that the next time I need to travel by bus I will definitely be using Peter Pan.

NYC to Washington D.C. Traveler

Inexpensive, bus left and arrived on schedule, clean facilities. We did not experience any inconveniences, and we were even allowed to take an earlier bus when we arrived before our scheduled departure. No complaints!

NYC Traveler

My driver, Jennifer, was fantastic! We ran into some very stormy weather just as we approached Boston and the traffic was very bad. She got off I93 and navigated us through Quincy and eventually back on to 93. I'm sure she saved us some time and our bus was only about 20 minutes late. Both drivers made announcements and kept us up to date on the situation (this especially on the ride back in the thunderstorms).

Cape Cod Traveler

Our bus trip was the best ever! We departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule; our bus drivers were personable and professional. There was plenty of seat room, the bus was super clean, plus wifi and USB outlets to stay connected. Win-win!! Overall, a really pleasant experience. I'll definitely use Peter Pan Bus Lines again!

NYC Traveler

We purchased a round trip ticket from DC to NYC. The ride on 1/10 from DC to NYC at 1pm, the drivers were amazing and friendly! We thoroughly enjoyed our ride.

Washington D.C. to NYC Travelers

Operator Victoria said she had some tricks up her sleeves with regard to the traffic they were experiencing. Boy did she ever! Her knowledge of the roads and creativity in using her knowledge inventive always in the safest manner. Congratulate her again from a native, experienced NY driver – it’s a thrill to see a “pro” in action.

NYC Traveler

Just wanted to say how happy I was with my trip from Providence to the airport in Boston on Jan. 20 (1:30 p.m. bus). The driver was excellent! It was my first time using Peter Pan and I will be quick to recommend. Thanks for the great service!

Providence to Boston Logan Airport Traveler

I have been a regular, weekly customer on the 10:15AM Boston-Springfield bus. Almost every time, my driver is Everett. Where he stands out - in my opinion - is in his calm, clear, concise announcements, especially as we are drawing near to Springfield's Union Terminal. And from his tone of voice, I can hear his concern that everyone is clear about staying on the bus or transferring to another bus for a destination.

Boston - Springfield Traveler

I’m writing this note regarding Peter Pan Bus services to the Cape. From start to return what an exceptional experience. At every stop/transfer the bus drivers were very informative and helpful, especially Operator Paul when leaving the Falmouth Station and Frank - so much pride for his job and company. I also found your buses comfortable and clean.

Cape Cod Traveler

My daughter is traveling home on the noon bus from South Station to Springfield and she said the buses are SO clean! Kudos to the garages and cleaners in this crazy time. She had to get out of Boston and her tiny apartment as the company she works for is on remote work only.

Boston to Springfield Traveler

Everyone at Peter Pan was extremely helpful and went above and beyond. Would I recommend them? -without a doubt!!

Peter Pan Traveler

Our morning ride was scheduled from Baltimore to NY at 7am, we arrived in NY 15 min early. 8PM ride back to Baltimore left at 8PM and we arrived 20 min early. Both drivers were friendly, both buses were clean both buses had adequate temperatures and neither were filled to capacity

Baltmore-NYC Express Traveler

At the beginning of our trip, our bus driver delivered our rules. The message was loud and clear- this is a shared space, and it is expected that you respect that and your fellow passengers. After our driver set the tone, I had the most relaxed 4 hr ride to Boston! Thank you!

NYC - Boston EXPRESS Traveler

I've been taking Peter Pan buses for the past 15 years and it's the only bus line I use because why fix something that isn't broken? Peter Pan is tried and true and has gained my loyalty. The drivers are very professional, drive safely, and keep us updated on target arrival times. The buses themselves are extremely comfortable with lots of leg room and decently wide seats.
