History of Peter Pan Buses

The Early Journey (1933):

  • Peter Pan Bus Lines began its adventure in 1933 with just two Buick cars.
  • The company's name was inspired by the founder's son's favorite book, Peter Pan.
  • The first route connected Northampton, Massachusetts to Boston, with a stop in Stafford Springs, Connecticut. Back then, a trip took nearly four hours and cost $1.75.

Passing the Torch (1964):

  • In 1964, the founder passed away, and his son, Peter L. Picknelly, took the wheel.
  • Peter L. Picknelly saw an opportunity and created tour packages for the exciting 1964 New York World's Fair.

Shifting Gears (1990s-2000s):

  • For a period in the 1990s, Peter Pan Bus Lines joined forces with the Trailways Transportation System. However, they went their separate ways in 2005.
  • The 1990s also saw a period of competition with Greyhound Lines. Interestingly, these rivals became allies in 1999, collaborating on schedules, marketing, and ticket sales. This partnership ended in 2017.
  • Peter Pan Bus Lines expanded its reach during this time, venturing beyond New England to serve major cities like New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Baltimore.
  • Growth continued in 2002 with the acquisition of Coach USA's Northeastern division, adding 255 vehicles to their fleet.
  • However, some streamlining also occurred. In 2004, the company sold its Maine Line operation and closed its Pawtuxet Valley, Rhode Island location in 2005.
  • In the same year (2004), Peter A. Picknelly III assumed the role of CEO after his father's passing.
