Very poor time management. The bus was late and then the driver got lost on the way to New York. I ended up making my connection but it made me worrrkes.

Ahmed A.2 January 2019 | Staff: 5 |

Whole trip was great comfortable and enjoyable but the bus was late at the first point it was not good experience and impression.

Jasleen G.11 September 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

I want a refund. I missed my interview because try didn’t not have a driver for the bus for 3.5 hours . Ridiculous. Never going to recommend anyone greyhound.

Isha B.7 September 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

Peter pan bus was really good just the bus timings were little confusing for which the time and bus number should be shown on the screen clearly to avoid confusion

Peter Pan is a no frills bus company who are committed to satisfying their customers. Always punctual

Catherine H.14 July 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

They double booked the bus so I could not get on the bus and they did not file people on to the bus in the order of their tickets. So I had to take a bus 4 hours later then what was on my ticket originally. Then, the bus driver had to stop 30 minutes away from port authority bc he was near his driving limit but, it was not his fault another driver was supposed to relieve him and did not show up bc the company made a mistake. It was a terrible experience

Ariana M.14 July 2018 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 2 | 

My departing bus arrived extremely late causing me to miss my connecting bus. Our driver took the HEAVIEST traffic route, and missed multiple turns— adding to our delay. I was able to take a later connecting bus which was also late. Needless to say I won’t be traveling with Peter Pan again as they clearly can’t handle connections. Also when I bought my ticket I wasn’t even informed that it wasn’t a direct route. I wouldn’t have purchased my ticket if I knew that going in.

Darshi P.10 July 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

It's not Peter pan that I am angry with it's bus bud. You sold me a ticket that does not even exist.

Abdulelah A.3 July 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

I had flight that I missed because of the delay. The bus had no air condition and we stopped for almost 3 hours after we left Boston until the mechanic arrives but the said we can’t fix it. So we waited for the back up bus arrived. So for that I need a refund. That was my first and last time riding with your company.

Alexandra D.30 June 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Bus did not exist. This site is a complete scam!!!

Megan D.19 June 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

I had the displeasure of riding Greyhound. For the third time in a row the bus driver did not show up to the terminal and so I along with many others were forced to wait sitting on the floor of the dirty terminal from 3:15 am until nearly 7 am. I missed a very important appointment in the morning due to the delay. The staff were terrible shouting at passengers.

Roberto P.9 June 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 5 | 

Everthing ok

Very poor ! Improve your operations. I can give you a better business model

Maria G.27 May 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

I had a connecting bus in NYC. Because of traffic, we arrived 10 minutes past the departure of the connecting bus. The connecting bus left as scheduled. It was nice that I didn't have to pay for the later bus.

I had to take 2buses to reach Philadelphia from Boston. My first bus met with an accident breaking the window beside me, spilling the glass pieces all over me and leave me with a panic attack. Just tried to cope with the incident and got in the line to board my next bus to Philadelphia which was delayed by 1hour. We had no news or the reason for the delay. No body was there at the help desk who can answer our queries.

Megan D.31 March 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 1 | 

Unfortunately, I had the displeasure of riding Greyhound. My bus was scheduled to leave at 3:15 am in the morning from New York City to Philadelphia, but like many others was not able to get on the bus because seats were overbooked. The staff was extremely rude and offered no explanations or apologizes. They also gave us no information on when a next bus would be available. Because of this I was separated from my two friends living from outside of the country. They were stranded in Philadelphia without my guidance. I spent the night in the terminal and was unable to get on a bus until nearly 7 am. There also was no one available at customer service to assist passengers.

John C.25 March 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Without a doubt, far in away, the most miserable travel experience of my existence. My bus was 5 minutes late to New York from Boston and I missed my transfer bus to Philadelphia at 3:30. I was told that I would be grabdfathered in to the next bus at 4:30, which was slightly inconvenient, but understandable. What’s not understandable is the fact that I left New York at 6:30. I stood in a line for 2 hours, shepherded by the most ruthless dictator of a customer service peasant imaginable. He was rude, lacked any understanding or compassion of the situation, and in my mind should be tried for federal sentencing, or at least mercilessly punished for his transgressions. Peter Pan truly embodies their name—they never grow up. Return trip on the bolt bus was seemless.

There lot disturbance made by other passengers through the travel. The bus was not warm enough.

Anthony P.24 March 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 |

Alyssa T.17 January 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

Due to technical problems with the bus, I arrived approx. three hours late to my destination. The ride was meant to be a bit under seven hours. That said, otherwise the trip was just fine.

Terence L.28 December 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Missed Connection and had to choose to wait till next day or get tickets from another company

About Bus Travel

Bus Travel Tips

Make friends with the driver. They usually know a lot about your destination and may even recommend which side of the bus to sit on to get the best views on the road between Boston and Philadelphia!

Much more than a mere vehicle taking you from Boston to Philadelphia, riding the bus will expose you to some of most stunning panoramas while enroute to your final bus stop.

Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from Boston to Philadelphia.

Make a music playlist for your bus ride from Boston to Philadelphia, and enjoy the scenery to tunes from your own personal soundtrack.

Did you know?

Did you know there are on average 4,400 intercity bus departures every day in the US only? This number has been growing for 9 years in a row, yay!

The word 'bus' is an abbreviation of 'omnibus" which means 'for all' in Latin as buses were meant to be transportation for everybody.

Did you know some bus companies in Germany offer to their passenger low-costs snacks and regional beer based on their destination? Prosit!
