Bus Service for Marine Atlantic Passengers
New Bus Service Providing Customers Access to Downtown Port aux Basques Set to Begin July 1
Beginning July 1 and running until September 2, customers at the Port aux Basques terminal will have access to a complimentary return bus service while awaiting the night crossing to Nova Scotia.
The service will run nightly departing the Marine Atlantic terminal at 6:15p.m. and 7:00p.m., with an extra return trip to the terminal at 8:30p.m. Schedule modifications may be made through the season based upon usage and feedback.
The pilot project, made possible by the joint efforts of the Town of Port aux Basques, the Port aux Basques and Area Chamber of Commerce and Marine Atlantic, will provide thousands of Marine Atlantic customers with the option of visiting the downtown area, and new opportunities for local businesses. Following the summer season, results from the service will be reviewed to determine next steps and options for the future.
For additional information or further instructions on how to use this service, please inquire upon check-in at the terminal. We look forward to the launch of this exciting new pilot project partnership.
