Let Someone Else Drive You

Taking a Bus to Provincetown


March 28th, 2008

Want to take it a bit slower? Or maybe just have a chance to see the beautiful landscape of the Outer Cape, without having to deal with driving or parking?

Although less autonomous and a bit slower than driving a car, taking a bus to Provincetown is a smart way to go. A car’s really not necessary in Provincetown, where you can easily walk or rent a bike.

Then a bus may be your answer. Two bus lines – the Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company and Peter Pan Bus Line – service Provincetown, and which one you take depends on the direction you’re coming from.

In any case, the trip to Provincetown from the two most common departure points of Boston or Providence takes about four hours.

FROM BOSTON OR OTHER POINTS NORTH

From Boston, and other stops along the Boston to Provincetown route, the Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Co. offers service about four times a day during the height of the season.

The company has serviced the Cape area for more than 100 years, first as an electric streetcar operator and now as a bus line.

Plymouth & Brockton currently departs from four locations in Boston, including Logan Airport, and makes stops all along its route to Provincetown. A one-way ticket to Provincetown from Logan Airport costs $33, while roundtrip is available at a discount for $59. Tickets for children cost about half as much.

No pets are allowed aboard the bus, but bikes can be brought along if space permits for a fee of $10 between Boston and Provincetown.

Buses leaving Provincetown depart from Provincetown’s Chamber of Commerce at the base of MacMillan Pier.

For more information about the Plymouth & Brockton bus line, visit www.p-b.com or call 508.746.0378.

FROM PROVIDENCE OR OTHER POINTS WEST

If you are departing from Providence, R.I., or other points to the west, the Peter Pan Bus Line offers service to Hyannis, where you can catch a Plymouth & Brockton bus to Provincetown for the remainder of your journey.

The bus departs around five times daily, with one-way tickets costing about $25 and roundtrip tickets about $45.

Buses depart from the Peter Pan Bonanza Bus Terminal at the Kennedy Plaza (1 Bonanza Way). From the airport, either hail a cab for a 15-minute ride or take public transportation buses numbered 12, 14, 20 or 66. It arrives at the Plymouth & Brockton station in Hyannis.

The Peter Pan bus line offers service from other areas in Rhode Island, New York Massachusetts and Connecticut as well, but only as far as Hyannis.

For more information, visit www.peterpanbus.com or call 800.343.9999.

Although less autonomous and a bit slower than driving a car, taking a bus to Provincetown is a smart way to go. A car’s really not necessary in Provincetown, where you can easily walk or rent a bike, and parking can be a costly pain.
