Plymouth & Brockton is set to launch a new bus service from Woods Hole to airports in Boston and Rhode Island starting Saturday, Aug. 14.
The company reached a licensing agreement with the Steamship Authority last month to provide the daily bus service from Woods Hole to Boston’s Logan Airport and T.F. Green in Warwick, Rhode Island. It’s the first time passengers will have the option to take a bus to the Rhode Island airport. Peter Pan also provides bus service from the SSA’s Woods Hole terminal.
“P&B bus service will include stops in Woods Hole, Falmouth Station, and Sagamore. From there, the bus will head directly to Boston South Station then Logan International Airport. In addition, we will provide daily bus service from Woods Hole to T.F. Green via New Bedford and Fall River,” John Cogliano, the company’s president, said. “We are very pleased to add these routes to our service. We believe there is a demand for the service and we are looking forward to providing this transportation option for residents of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and the Cape.”
Cogliano was having difficulty getting the SSA’s attention until The Times began inquiring about the delay in putting the competing bus service on the agenda for consideration by the Authority’s board.
P&B already offers service from Hyannis to Logan.
“Traveling on a Plymouth and Brockton bus to Boston, Logan Airport, TF Green Airport, and Cape Cod is a safer, greener, and more cost effective way to travel to your destination,” Cogliano said. “Every P&B bus can take up to 55 cars off the road which reduces local traffic congestion, reduces overall gas consumption, and truly benefits the environment,” Cogliano said.
P&B plans to offer four roundtrips from Woods Hole to Boston and two trips daily between Woods Hole and T.F. Green. The bus schedule and tickets are available on the company’s website p-b.com.
