Getting Around: Shuttle Service to Cape May and Lewes
WE'LL DO THE DRIVING
Regularly scheduled shuttle service for the 2022 fall season begins 9/4/2022
Weekend service (Sat - Sun): 9/4 - 10/9
Shuttles run from the Cape May terminal to downtown Cape May (running to/from the Cape May Welcome Center at 609 Lafayette Street).
Shuttle service is $6 per passenger, and space is limited so reservations are required. Please call 800.643.3779 to make reservations.
The shuttle travels a single route between the Cape May terminal and the Cape May Welcome Center at 609 Lafayette Street; there are no other stops.
Shuttles meet incoming departures at the Cape May terminal from 10am - 4:30pm to bring passengers into Cape May.
Passengers looking to return to the Cape May terminal in time for the 6pm return departure to Lewes will want to make sure to check with the shuttle driver to confirm when the last shuttle leaves the Cape May Welcome Center. Generally this is around 5pm, but we suggest checking with your shuttle driver to confirm exact time.
