About Maritime Bus

Maritime Bus is a Canadian bus company based in Charlottetown, on Canada’s east coast. Its passenger services are based around Canada’s ‘Maritimes’ (hence the name), which incorporates the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia as well as Prince Edward Island.

Maritime Bus was founded in August 2012 and conducted its first passenger services in December of the same year. Maritime Bus serves 280 routes and connect 33 towns and cities in Canada. Some of its most popular destinations include Halifax, Saint-John, and Dartmouth, plus Moncton, Dieppe, and Truro.

Focused on providing great value services, onboard facilities are limited to restrooms, so be sure to have your devices fully charged and entertainment to hand before taking your seat.

Pros: As I a student I can only afford to travel by bus within Fredericton. And I am grateful to the driver to consider my request to drop me near UNB. Cons: The fare can be reduced or student discount can be reintroduced for us to often visit our family and loved one.
