Commuter

 

 

C O M M U T E R

Pelican Bus’s Commuter Bus service knows the route to your comfort zone. For many years, we have proudly served our commuters in Louisiana. We transport passengers, Monday thru Friday, from Mandeville across the Causeway to the Southshore where they arrive early to work. Following their full day at work, like clockwork, we pick them up and return them stress free.

Benefit: Free Time

We are like your very own daily limousine service, but on a comfortable luxury bus. You benefit from your Free Time instead of your Drive Time. You get to think inside the bus: work, text, sleep, dream or listen to your favorite music – precious time that allows you to catch up and keep up with life.

Going the Extra Mile

We pride ourselves on “going the extra mile” for our commuter customers. We deliver you to work on time, saving you time, money and parking hassles. Pelican Bus is the Northshore commuter’s #1 Bus Choice in Louisiana.

We ask passengers who ride on a daily or weekly basis to write the dates they ride in the memo section of the check or attach a note.
