Peter Pan Bus Service, Amtrak Affected by Boston Manhunt


NEW YORK (WGGB/AP) — Because of the ongoing police activity around, mass transit services have been effected, including Peter Pan Bus Lines.

Chris Crean, VP of Safety and Security for Peter Pan, says that there is currently no bus service in or out of Boston.

The only exception is that bus service is continuing to Boston’s Logan Airport, which remains open but has tightened security measures.

Amtrak announced early Friday afternoon that service has been suspended indefinitely between Boston and New York City.

JetBlue, the largest airline in Boston, is allowing anybody scheduled to fly to or from Boston to change their ticket for free.

Megabus has canceled at least 18 buses between Boston and New York, New Haven, Conn., Hartford, Conn., Burlington, Vt. and Philadelphia.

Residents in Watertown, Newton, Waltham, Belmont, Cambridge and the Allston /Brighton neighborhood of Boston are advised to stay indoors. Business in those areas should also not open.

M.I.T., Harvard, Boston College, Boston University, and Emerson College are closed today, as well as a number of local city schools.

For those looking for more information on the status of Peter Pan service, you can visit Peter Pan’s website or call them at 1-800-343-9999 (Mon-Thu. 8a-5p, Fri 8a-7p, Sat 9a-1p, Sun 9a-7p)
