Getting Around

Ferry Shuttles

Both Cape May and Lewes terminals offer shuttles that can help foot passengers get around the local area. Shuttles operate on seasonal schedules, with limited stops, so be sure to talk to a customer service representative before making travel plans based around the shuttles. Shuttles from both terminals operate daily between Memorial Day weekend and September.  There is one Cape May Basic Shuttle Route, and two Lewes Basic Routes with one seasonal afternoon state park extension. The Shuttle fee for all routes is $5/person for 6yrs of age and older.  

Cape May Shuttle: The shuttle leaves from the Cape May Ferry Terminal, meets incoming boats from 10:30Am through 4:30PM and loops continuously to the Cape May Welcome Center (609 Lafayette St.) , which is a short walk from most Cape May attractions. This shuttle runs from late May through the end of September. The last shuttle from the Cape May Welcome Center will get you back for the 6PM departure back to Lewes and leaves at approximately 5:00PM from downtown.

Lewes Loop Shuttle & Cape Henlopen State Park PM Extension Route: In Lewes, the first basic Lewes Loop takes you into town  to the 2nd and Market Street stop and back to the terminal. This shuttle route is in effect from late May through the end of September for Cape May departures leaving between 7:00am and 3:30pm. Shuttles depart every 30 minutes and it is a 5 minute journey into Lewes, DE. 

Lewes DART Route:

A second basic Lewes route goes from late May to late September to the DART Park & Ride and connects to another shuttle that takes you to the Outlets and Rehoboth. There is no shuttle from the terminal that goes directly to the Outlets. Once at the first Tanger Outlet, the Outlet has its own shuttles with one that runs between the 3 Tanger sites. 

Ground Transportation Options

Taxis are available locally. Please inquire with customer service at the ticket counters in either terminal if you need a phone number for a local service. Enterprise Rentals can also be contacted at local offices and will sometimes drop off cars. Ubers are sporadically available on both sides of the bay, but there is not extensive coverage in the Lewes and Cape May areas. Public transport options are generally not within walking distance and require a taxi or shuttle to get to transit centers in the local towns. To check state transit options see the links below.
