Greyhound and Peter Pan Bus Lines today announced the expansion of reserved seating to four new major markets along the east coast. Passengers traveling from New York City to Hartford, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Springfield, Mass., now have the additional ticketing option of reserved seating.
“Our company is dedicated to finding ways to improve the overall travel experience for our passengers,” said Myron Watkins, vice president of operations, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “In addition to the latest amenities available on our buses, such as extra legroom and free Wi-Fi, reserved seating gives travelers added convenience, just in time for Easter and Passover holiday travel.”
Reserved seating is available for an additional fee of $3-$5, one-way, in select cities on specific schedules. Customers can purchase this option in advance up to two hours prior to departure online, and at any time up to one half hour before departure in terminals. Reserved seating originally launched in major Massachusetts metros, Boston, Framingham and Newton.
