Peter Pan will move to new Union Station Springfield

May 9, 2017

Peter Picknelly and the Springfield Redevelopment Authority announced yesterday that financial terms have been decided, and Peter Pan will move its operations (with Greyhound as a second bus operator) to the new Union Station. There is no timeline, as Peter Picknelly has said that it will take some time to work out the mechanics and details of the move. There is no announcement yet about office space – long term or short term lease.

Peter Picknelly is working with several potential suitors for the redevelopment of the current bus terminal facility. Those negotiations are confidential and the party is not yet announced.
