Greyhound, Peter Pan team to offer intercity service

Posted on September 20, 2012

YO!, a new bus line jointly operated by Greyhound and Peter Pan Bus Lines, will launch eight daily non-stop departures each way between New York and Philadelphia's Chinatown neighborhoods on Sept. 27.

The new service offers on-board amenities such as a guaranteed seat, extra legroom with comfortable leather seating, free Wi-Fi and power outlets. One-way tickets are as low as $12 every day and now on sale at www.yobus.com.

The service offers a safe, modern and affordable travel solution for customers in New York and Philadelphia who like the convenience of a Chinatown stop.

"Currently intercity bus service between Chinatown in New York and Philadelphia is virtually non-existent, so we are excited to offer customers a service that meets their travel needs," said Dave Leach, president/CEO of Greyhound Lines Inc.

The name YO! is derived from the pronunciation of the Chinese word that means "to protect." It also serves as a nod to the Philadelphia community, where "yo!" as an enthusiastic greeting was born.

"We are committed to providing a fun and safe travel experience for our customers, and YO! embodies these two values," said Peter Picknelly, chairman/CEO, Peter Pan Bus Lines. "With environmentally-friendly buses and the most highly trained, professional drivers in the industry behind the wheel, our customers can sit back and relax on YO!, knowing they'll get to their destination safely, well-rested and on time."
