The NSLC Cabbioke Shuttle will be at Bay Ferries' Digby terminal at 10:30am to pick up passengers arriving from Saint John, New Brunswick and will return at 5:00 pm to drop off passengers who have visited Digby for the day and are returning to Saint John. The downtown Digby pick up/ drop off location will be behind Headquarters on First Avenue. When the NSLC Cabbioke Shuttle is not making ferry terminal runs, it will flow into the cycle from Walmart through Conway downtown and back again.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are registered at the Annapolis Basin Conference Centre, please take their dedicated shuttle bus. It will be stopping at the two stops on First Avenue and at Bruce's Automotive across from the Sunset Pub. If you are staying in Smiths Cove and not staying at the ABCC, you will find yourself lost in the countryside ... watch for the NSLC Cabbioke Shuttle!
There is parking available in public and private areas around Digby: malls, schools, government buildings.
