Peter Pan to equip fleet with WiFi

Posted on June 4, 2009

Springfield, Mass.-based Peter Pan Bus Lines will become one of the first inter-city bus lines to have wireless Internet available to passengers through the installation of WiFi technology on its fleet.

The operator is in the process of installing WiFi technology on 150 motorcoaches at a cost of $75,000, not including Peter Pan's labor to install the technology.

"Passengers want to use laptop computers, accessing the Internet to do work or to check email, and the installation of the WiFi wireless compatibility to our coaches gives Peter Pan an advantage over air travel or travel by auto," said Peter A. Picknelly, Peter Pan's president. "Our passengers have indicated they want Internet access, and we always move aggressively when it comes to adding technological advances to our fleet."

Peter Pan's in-house maintenance staff is handling the WiFi installation, with completion of the project expected by July.
