Getting to Truro from the airport

How to get to Truro from Halifax airport

By shuttle bus

Maritime Bus

An inexpensive option to travel to Truro is to take the Maritime bus. Tickets are approximately $15 CAD one-way (cheaper with student ID) but must be pre-purchased prior to travel. Book and purchase online or at the Ground Transportation Booth at the airport (located near the arrivals lounge). 

The shuttle leaves the airport daily between 8 a.m. and 4:50 p.m. (visit their website for later pick-ups on Fridays and Sundays from September to May).

The journey takes approximately one hour to Truro (drops you off at Maritime bus Truro terminal - 280 Willow Street) and then you may want to take a taxi to campus, which takes an additional 10 minutes (or a 42 minute walk).
