Frequent service, allows you to take in more of Acadia without having to drive. Helps the park and the environment.

“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.

“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!
