efficient as automobiles…and four times as efficient as commercial
aviation.” Furthermore, as stated in their
Peter Pan/Intercity Motor coach Statistics editorial – while
passenger cars are responsible for 64.5% of all vehicular accidents and
trucks are responsible for 34.4%; intercity/transit buses only claim
Perhaps this is possible because
of their emphasis on superior driving safety and technology. For
example, All Peter Pan coaches use a unique Global Positioning System
