Public Transit
22
Halifax public transit covers the entire Halifax peninsula, as well Dartmouth, Bedford and the areas of Halifax off the peninsula, such as Clayton Park. Public transit bus schedules are integrated with Google Maps. Schedules by bus line and route maps are available in the link below. Cash fare is $2.50, 10 tickets is $20. For the airport bus, one ticket must be supplemented by a dollar. Ticket or exact cash is required, bus drivers do not carry cash. The end of the airport bus route is a short walk from HCC, the DocEng venue. You can board another bus from there using the transfer (no additional fare). The airport bus makes a stop at the bus terminal in Dartmouth, if you stay at the Doubletree, or another Dartmouth location.
