Did a good service. Bus changed at Springfield; second bus was nicer, having power for laptop and not not just USB. Perhaps instructions on how to load luggage could have been clearer.

I loved the driver very friendly but I was an hour late to my destination because the bus was missing two lug nuts and we had to transfer buses

Slow but gets the job done

I usually don’t get carsick riding buses but oh my, the moment I got on Peter Pan I immediately felt carsick due to the smell. Check in staff weren’t friendly at all. They were inpatient to answer my questions about my ticket, which I was certain was supposed to be Expressed with ZERO transfer when I booked via Busbud, not needing a bus transfer from Boston to Amherst. I ended up having to transfer in Springfield. I am very disappointed with this whole experience. Needless to say, I won’t be riding a Peter Pan bus in a very long time.

Awful. The bus driver was thoroughly insane and i got off the bus out of confusion.

Morgan B.July 6, 2018 | 

Staff was friendly and driver provided transfer info that I needed, so no complaints

Bus from Boston to Springfield... shocks/struts questionable. Or is the highway that bad?!

Kelly G.April 28, 2018 | 

I bought a ticket for a direct route from Boston to Amherst and there ended up being a bus switch where the second bus was an hour delayed. What was supposed to be a 4-6pm trip ended up being a 430-9pm trip. I never ended up taking the second bus to my destination and I ended up taking an expensive Uber because I couldn’t wait any longer.

Donald H.February 22, 2018 | 

I am not used to bus rides but the bus was confortable and had an electrical outlet.

Tendai M.February 19, 2018 | 

The bus stop address was completely wrong, so I missed my bus.
