Peter Pan Bus Lines will continue the pause in scheduled service through the end of April, 2020 due to lack of ridership interest as well as efforts from Local, County, State and Federal government to have the population “stay-in-place” and not travel unnecessarily.
Schedules for May, 2020 are active and tickets may be purchased online.
