  • We depart Sydney every morning and twice a day on Fridays and Sundays.
  • You can hop on the Valley Express from Halifax to Wolfville on Fridays & Sundays.
  • We have three departures to Fredericton from Moncton 7 days a week.

Every day, except Christmas Day, Maritime Bus travels close to 10,000 km providing affordable service to our three Maritime Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, with connecting service to anywhere in Canada!

With our seamless network of routes, Passengers and Parcels experience very little layover time at our major hubs.  We get you in and get you out!

For exact departure and arrival times at a location nearest you, please click the “Routes and Schedules” link on the home page.


1. If booking on-line please only use one side of your page to print your ticket as our drivers need a copy for each transfer point.

2. We stop to allow you to stretch your legs and grab a coffee or a snack along the way at one of our awesome convenient locations en route!

3. Try to arrive 30 minutes prior to departure and if you are shipping a parcel please have it packaged properly and ready for a waybill.

4. If we have a storm warning issued you will see it on our home page and we ask that you travel with a credit card or a bit of cash stored away in case you have  to spend the night in a hotel.

5. If you are connecting to VIA rail or planning on making an airport connection it is important to allow yourself lots of time to do so.


Our Terminal staff, our Agencies and Our Drivers try each and everyday to remain on time and provide the level of service you have come to know and expect.  Delays can occur for a number of reasons; weather, road construction, traffic congestion, and yes sometimes, no matter how hard we try, irritating mechanical bus issues are a reality!





In response to COVID-19 and the temporary shutdown of the connecting bus company in Quebec we are operating on a reduced schedule beginning Monday, March 30, 2020 We will have service on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Our Terminals will remain open this week, as usual, to help answer any questions you may have. Thank you and please stay safe!
