Martha’s Vineyard Ferry & Peter Pan Bus improve lax communications

July 8, 2018

After a May 29, 2018 incident where a delayed Peter Pan Bus ended up stranding a couple dozen passengers at Wood’s Hole after the last ferry failed to wait for them on the last sailing, both Peter Pan Bus Lines and Martha’s Vineyard Steamship Authority have firmed up their protocol regarding communications to assure it doesn’t happen again. What made it more problematic is many hotels refused to register stranded passengers who were under 25 years of age. Now, SSA will reach out to Peter Pan if they haven’t seen the last bus arrival; Peter Pan will also use the correct phone no. to contact SSA.
