PVTA ending bus service at 1:30, van transportation reduced

Van service will only be for life-sustaining transportation

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The storm created an inconvenience for some Pioneer Valley Transit Authority bus riders. The PVTA made a decision late Thursday morning to discontinue all bus service at 1:30 p.m.

22News was at the PVTA bus station downtown where passengers hoped to get to their destination before their bus stopped running. Bianca Wilson of Springfield was confident she’d make connections.

“Hope to God to get there or I’ll call Mom or somebody,” Bianca said. “If I get halfway there, I’ll walk the rest of the way. I’ll get home” Many of her fellow passengers had the same concern.

The PVTA has real-time information about service delays on their website at PVTA.com.

Meanwhile, the PVTA is also reducing their van service. They are only operating life-sustaining transportation, such as trips to take patients to dialysis.

Peter Pan Bus Lines has cancelled all service north of New York City on Thursday, and will not resume service there until 12:30 Friday morning.
