    Transportation to and in Maine

    by paulapes Updated Oct 7, 2006

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main method of travel around Maine is by automobile........that way you can go wherever you want to. It's also the most convenient because there is public transportation, but the majority of it is from Portland south, and that doesn't cover much of the state!

    The train service to Portland is Amtrak, and you could take it from Boston, or anywhere south of Boston. There is bus service in Portland, but to get to other cities and areas from there, you have to do your homework. I've included the train website here: -- it's very easy to use.

    I've also included below a few website links for the Maine Tourism site, the Dept. of Transportation's website with information on bus transport for the rest of the state. This includes the ferry services for the coastal islands and Nova Scotia, and the high-speed ferry (The Cat) website. In the tourism website you'll find many suggestions for getaways, tours, etc.

    One more website, for the Maine Eastern Railroad, which is an option for sightseeing from Brunswick to Rockland, along the coast:

    (You'll have to cut & paste the amtrak, visitmaine, and maineeasternrailroad sites, sorry)

    Mount Desert Island

    by roamer61 Updated Sep 18, 2004

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island has its own municipal airport. Scheduled flights are available from Bostons Logan Airport during most of the season (April-October). Outside of this period, it is best to check with the airlines, or the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce.
    The state as a whole has all the regular modes of travel. Mount Desert Island has taxis in some of the larger towns. Car and foot are the main ways to get around Bar Haarbor and Acadia National Park.

    The only way to go is to drive. you'll miss the best part of Maine if you stay in one place. Fly in and drive around or drive in and rive around. Meet the people there Maine best feature. Stay away from tourist season, summer. Go in spring or fall.
    Drive and walk once you get to where your going

    The Portland Jetport is a small facility and very quick to get through. The connections are limited but it is the best way to enter southern Maine.

    The highways and the general ways are very good. They are double big like in Hungary. You can see on the picture. I think it's more safety and nicer.

    A reliable vehicle. I always patronize the Irvings service stations because they are Canadian owned and the 'big stops' are well run.
