Getting around by bus

The bus is often the best way to get between towns in Nova Scotia if you don’t have a car. Acadian, also known as SMT, is the only province-wide bus operator.

There are also numerous shuttle services operating from major towns to Halifax.

Unfortunately, transport in rural areas and even between some towns is patchy and can take a long time. It really is worth trying to get access to a car if at all possible.

One handy local service worth knowing about is the Kings Transit bus service in the Annapolis Valley, connecting Bridgetown, Digby, New Minas and Wolfville.

For journeys outside Nova Scotia, the Greyhound website has schedules for buses across Canada and to the United States.
