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.
