“Great way to get around town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Love taking rides on the bus when available. Great for sightseeing as well as you can jump off and back on at any of the stops. Unfortunately during the summer and early fall the buses can be quite packed with tourists, but during those months we either bike or drive ourselves.

Good way to get around Mount Desert Island. And free! Buses run throughout the day during the summer.

“Takes the Stress out of the Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Easy to plan out how to get to places, when to get picked up and where you will be able to be dropped off. No need to drive around when you get to your hotel. Just hop a bus!

“Bus trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

It would have been better to take the car, as the bus did not give anything like enough time to enjoy the views.
