    Charlottetown Transportation

    To get to Prince Edward Island, you can drive across from New Brunswick via the Confederation Bridge. It takes about 9 minutes one-way, if you're driving at the posted speed limit. You don't pay the toll driving east to the island, but have your credit card or cash ready when you're leaving. For 2007, the toll is $40.75 for a 2-axle vehicle, $6.75...

    Prince Edward Island Transportation

    Reasons to use the Bridge The Confederation Bridge joins the provinces of Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, Canada and forms part of the Trans Canada Highway-making travel to and from the mainland fast and simple. A close 30 minutes from the Nova Scotia/New Brunswick border, the engineering marvel is open year-round 24 hours a day and takes...

    Charlottetown Transportation

    Charlottetown is a wonderful walking city in pleasant weather. It's relatively small, so you can easily walk the residential neighbourhoods, shopping district and historical landmarks with nothing more under your feet than comfortable shoes. PEI as a whole is easily navigable by car or bicycle. Personally I would love to return for a cycling trip...

    Prince Edward Island Transportation

    Personally, after spending ten minutes crossing the Confederation Bridge, I immediately became fed up when the car in front of us was chosen to be the last car up the ship. Not only were we stranded for another hour and a half, but was stuck to ride the mediocre ship. Since the views were practically the same as from the Confederation Bridge, I...

  • A giant bridge to a small island

    Getting to P.E.I. is very easy - you've got two main options. There's the giant Confederation Bridge which connects New Brunswick and the island, and there's a regular ferry service between P.E.I. and Nova Scotia. The bridge will take you to the middle part of the island and is thus a great starting point for a round trip, while the ferry lands in...

  • How to get there

    You can fly into Charlottetown, the capital city but if you're in a car, there are two ways to get to the Island, by the Confederation Bridge and by car ferry. The Confederation Bridge is 13 kilometers long and connects from New Brunswick to the Island near Summerside. Current costs are about $40 CAD but you only pay when *leaving* the island. The...

  • Flying in

    If you're flying in to PEI, you'll arrive in Charlottetown. There are no other airports on the Island. The Charlottetown airport is tiny and only has one terminal/gate, so you don't have to worry about it being crowded and chaotic like in international airports. The plane you'll fly in will probably be a tiny little thing too.

  • Arriving on the bridge

    The Confederation Bridge was completed in 1997, and connects PEI to the mainland (New Brunswick). It takes about 15 minutes to drive from one end to the other and when you arrive on the PEI side, you're in Borden-Carleton. You don't have to pay anything when arriving on the Island, but you do have to pay to leave (I'm not sure what the fee is, but...

  • Driving

    The best way to get around PEI is driving. There is public transit in Charlottetown, but it doesn't go beyond the city. So if you want to go from town to town or into the country, it's best to have a car.

  • How to get to P.E.I

    There are two common ways you can reach Prince Edward Island from mainland Canada. The first one is the confederation bridge, a 12 km long highway that links to the island from the province of New Brunswick. It is commonly referred to as the "fixed link" be residents of P.E.I. Just some background info: it carries two lanes of traffic, speed limit...

  • Confederation Bridge

    This 12.9 km bridge between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island was completed in 1997 and I think it is fair to say that driving across the Confederation Bridge is an attraction in itself. It is important to know that although driving across the bridge to P.E.I. is free, it costs $39.50 (for a car) to leave the Island, no matter how long you...

  • Public Transit in Charlottetown

    I was surprised when I realized that there is no such thing as public transit in Charlottetown or any other major city on the Island. People basically walk or take a taxi to go around. If you're planning to visit the entire island, then you can arrange to have a guided tour.

    I got there via the ferry from Caribou, in Nova Scotia! Both the bridge and the ferry are FREE going to PEI, but you pay to depart? .... why did I ever leave?

    The 13 kilometer Confederation Bridge is a quick way to arrive and depart the island. It's free to cross the bridge TO PEI, but expect to pay about $28 US to return.It was completed in 1997, amid much debate....

  • The Confederate Bridge

    Until the Confederate Bridge was built, much to the dismay of some of the Islanders, the only way onto the island was by ferry boat or plane. Opened in 1997 at around 13 Kilometers in length, the Confederate Bridge takes you from Cape Jourimain, New Brunswick to Borden, PEI. There is no toll go to the island, but coming back the toll is around $40...
