Some areas in Nova Scotia have public transportation services, including buses and ferries. Local buses and ferries operate on a regular schedule. Bus schedules are free, and may be found on buses and in shopping centres (look for an information booth). Fares for public transportation often change. As of 2007, the standard adult fare in Halifax was $2.00. There are reduced rates for children and seniors. You can also save money by purchasing tickets or passes if you plan to travel often by bus.
Shuttle services can also be a useful travel option. Halifax International Airport offers shuttle service to a variety of destinations in Nova Scotia. Shuttle service is also available from community-to-community.
