Any ideas on how to go from Maine to Canada by bus without going south through Boston?

  • Hm, you're right. It's the reverse direction, and the accepted answer isn't as good as the other answer, but close enough. – Michael Hampton Jul 5 '16 at 18:40

    Where in Maine? If you're in York, going via Boston isn't a huuuuge detour; if you're in Houlton, it'd be crazy. – David Richerby Jul 5 '16 at 18:49

    @DavidRicherby and where in Canada... – phoog Jul 5 '16 at 19:53

    I actually voted to close as too broad, not as a duplicate. If you specify your origin and destination a bit better, you might get a meaningful answer. Being able to get to St. Stephen by bus probably won't help if you're trying to go to Montreal, for example. – phoog Jul 5 '16 at 19:56

That's easy.

  1. Greyhound bus from Bangor, ME to Houlton, ME.
  2. Take a taxi (or walk, but it's about 26km) across the border to Woodstock, NB.
  3. Maritime Bus from Woodstock, NB to many points in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec.

  • westbusservice.com will take you to Calais, 500m from the CBSA post on the other side of the bridge in St. Stephen. – phoog Jul 5 '16 at 19:54
  • @phoog Yes, but then you have a 100km to go before you get to any sort of bus service. – Michael Hampton Jul 5 '16 at 20:09
  • That's why I voted to close the question as "too broad." – phoog Jul 5 '16 at 20:29
