Getting Around

Save Time for What Matters

Nova Scotian motorists spend much less time in traffic than in urban centres in Canada — the average person spends 11–14% less time commuting to work compared to the national average.

In some smaller communities, the commute time is even lower. And in Halifax, commuters spend just 24 minutes in transit — that's 30% less time than commuters in Toronto.

It's part of why Nova Scotia is known for its quality of life. Because less time getting home means more time being home.

Many cities and towns in Nova Scotia offer public transportation that helps make your commute even more simple:

"My work is located in the best possible location in Halifax. I come to work on the ferry, enjoy some amazing views and take my breaks along the waterfront. COWS ice cream is right outside our door, which makes for a dangerous snack break, but I am not complaining. After work, there are some great local craft breweries, all within walking distance. All of that combined makes even a busy week pretty stress-free."
