Peter Pan Bus Lines and Trailways announce alliance

Peter Pan Bus Lines and Trailways, the largest and oldest network of independent motor coach operators in North America, have announced a new strategic partnership effective immediately.

The alliance adds Peter Pan destinations to and, and many Trailways destinations to, providing customers with even more ground travel options.

“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,” said Alex Berardi, President of and

Peter Pan

Founded in 1936, Trailways is the largest and oldest network of independent motorcoach operators in North America, while Peter Pan serves over 120 communities throughout the Northeast. A privately owned, fourth-generation operated motorcoach company, Peter Pan has been serving communities since 1933 and holds the highest safety rating from both the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Reconnecting rural regions

The companies have debuted overnight service connecting major cities such as Toronto and Montreal with Boston, Providence, Hartford, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington. The alliance has restored transportation between rural communities for the first time since the COVID pandemic. 


Entire regions of the Northeast, such as the Adirondacks and Cape Cod, are now reconnected by ground transportation as a result of the partnership.

“Few family-run private bus companies such as 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,” said Peter A. Picknelly, Chairman and CEO of Peter Pan Bus Lines.
