to Halifax from the Airport
out of one of the doors by the luggage carousels. You have a choice
of a shuttle bus, a taxi, or a limo. The city is about 20 miles away.
A shuttle costing $12 single and $20 round trip drops off at the main
hotels in Halifax but not the smaller hotels or B and Bs. If you are
going to a major hotel and you are on your own it will be the cheapest
to go by shuttle. The person in the kiosk selling tickets just outside
the exit will tell you if the shuttle stops at or near your accommodation.
Groups or people arriving together or staying at the Bedford hotels
or B and Bs will be better to get a taxi or limo. Regular taxi rates
are $43 each way for 1-4 people but Ann Marie has arranged a special
rate with Hollis Taxi 902 452-7427. They will take 1-4 people for $35.
The owner is David Fraser. Delegates should mention that they are with
the Rural Communities Conference at Dalhousie University. The limo takes
more passengers and is slightly more than the regular taxi rate.
