Cape Cod Bus Trips for Couples

Couples planning a Cape Cod bus trip will note that the closest thing Cape Cod has to a mass transit system is a bus service called the Plymouth and Brockton Street Railway Company. It's used mostly by commuters traveling to and from Boston on a daily basis, but the service does enable visiting tourists to travel to the Cape by bus.

The fairs are not too expensive (about $25 one way from Logan Airport in Boston to Hyannis), the buses are clean and, considering they drive through the same Cape Cod traffic that the rest of us have to deal with, do a pretty good job of running on time.

If you have no car, and don't think you'll need one for the duration of your stay on Cape Cod, the Plymouth and Brockton will serve as a useful way to get from Boston to Cape Cod, most likely dropping you off either at Sagamore, West Barnstable or Hyannis. (From their main termial in Hyannis, it's just a short walk to catch ferries to either Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard)

The Plymouth and Brockton will also carry you further down Cape as far as Provincetown, if you like, but do check their schedules carfully, since outer Cape service is nowhere near as frequent, particulalrly late at night and on weekends and holidays. They do have a pretty good website to help you plan your trip.

If you're traveling in from the South, Bonanza bus/Peter Pan runs a service that starts at the Port Authority bus terminal in New York City, runs through Connecticut and Providence, and will take you all the way to the the Cape. It only runs as far as Hyannis, except in the peak tourist season, when three of the six daily trips will take you all the way to Provincetown. A one-way trip from New York City will run about $60, from Providence, it's about half that. The Bonanza bus website and schedules can be found here
