The partnership will allow for expanded service options which will connect New York City with Hartford, Connecticut; New Haven, Connecticut; Providence, Rhode Island; Worcester, Massachusetts and Boston.

The new routes are expected to nearly double the number of weekly trips between New York City and Boston sold on megabus.com.

“This partnership will allow us to expand our growing network once again,” said Linda Burtwistle, CEO of megabus.com, in a statement announcing the partnership.  “It’s very exciting to be able to team up with Peter Pan to offer even more travel options to our customers in the new year.”

The new routes are expected to nearly double the number of weekly trips between New York City and Boston sold on megabus.com.

“Peter Pan Bus Lines is pleased to be partnering with megabus to be able to offer increased service for travelers between Boston and New York City, as well as destinations throughout the Northeast,” said Peter Picknelly, CEO of Peter Pan Bus Lines. “This new venture opens additional travel opportunities to passengers.”

The announcement comes on the heels of Megabus.com announcing a partnership with Trailways of New York to expand bus service to more than 100 cities throughout New York State.

Megabus.com, part of Coach USA, offers intercity bus service across the Eastern, Southern and Midwestern United States and in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. It’s known for offering city-to-city express bus service across North America with fares as low as $1. The company recently introduced real-time tracking on buses, allowing customers to monitor their buses with live departure and arrival times.

Schedules are now available and tickets can be purchased today for travel beginning on Jan. 11 at  megabus.com
