Peter Pan Bus Lines Resumes Services-New CDC-approved cleaning process used to keep passengers and drivers safe.
SPRINGFIELD, MA [June 5, 2020] – Peter Pan Bus Lines buses will be back on the road serving major cities along the north-east corridor starting June 5 and the company has developed a new and unique cleaning process to keep both customers and employees safe.
“Shutting down was one of the hardest things we have ever done,” suggests Peter Picknelly, Chairman of Peter Pan Bus Lines and third generation leader of the family-owned company. “We also know that our customers have been through a lot as well. So, we are happy to back on the road, serving our customers again, but now using the best cleaning and sanitizing practices in the transportation industry.”
During the shutdown, Peter Pan Bus Lines continued to improve its contactless boarding procedures and technologies. The company also made a significant investment in its bus cleaning and disinfecting procedures. Currently, Peter Pan Bus Lines is the only bus company using CDC approved PermaSafe to continuously kill viruses, including COVID-19, bacteria, germs, and mold on contact. The nontoxic product also purifies passenger cabin air while making the interior surfaces antimicrobial and self-sanitizing. The company also uses state-of-the-art Victory electrostatic hand-held sprayers, together with the powerful BruTabS6 sealant, to sanitize and disinfect. The virus-killing sprayer is used over the bus. Peter Pan Bus Lines cleans all its coaches every day with some of them being cleaned mid-route.
“No contact boarding means that, once they have purchased their ticket online or through our app, all passengers have to do to board is to simply walk up to the bus and give the driver their name,” explained Mr. Picknelly. “In terms of safety and sanitizing, we are leading the industry with our CDC-approved approach. In fact, a hospital recently asked us to clean their staff buses.”
Routes and schedules are still changing frequently, so customers should visit peterpanbus.com for the latest information.
Additional safety provisions:
- Passengers are asked to wear a face mask while boarding and exiting the bus
- We strongly encourage passengers to wear a face mask while traveling for their safety and the safety of those around them
- The first row of seats behind the driver will not be open for passengers
- While on the bus fresh air will be continuously circulating
- Our employees have been issued PPE, including face masks and hand sanitizer, to follow the CDC recommendations.
