Bus Trip Reviews from Wanderu Customers

Average score for buses from New Haven to New York

(Based on 42 ratings and reviews)




March 22, 2024- Solo travel

Peter Pan Lines

Pros: The driver Kelly was excellent—friendly, efficient, and drove very smoothly. Best bus driver I’ve had on these kinds of buses. I’m a digital nomad so travel all the time and freelance so don’t make much so the combination of value and excellent driving made me rethink taking the bus. Cons: Maybe put a sign up if possible on the post by the New Haven stop. I won’t travel that route again probably but everyone had a tough time knowing where to stand even though you had clear instructions on the website. Tips: Read the website directions for where the buses stop.
