Ground Transportation and Shuttles

Ground Transportation

What type of ground transportation options are available for foot passengers?

There are multiple options for ground transportation as a walk-on passenger, depending on the time of year!

In Cape May, shuttle service is available during the summer season and into the early fall.

Cost: $6 per passenger

After Labor Day, weekend service typically remains available through early-mid October. When in service, the Cape May shuttle meets passengers in front of the Cape May terminal, and travels a single route to the Cape May Welcome Center, located at 609 Lafayette Street in Cape May. 

Sorry, No Dogs Allowed.  Our shuttles have limited space, so at this time no dogs are allowed on the shuttles.

Reservations are required as space is limited and there is no other method of public transportation from the terminal into Cape May. To reserve, please call Customer Service at 800.643.3779 between 8am - 4pm.

In Lewes, the DART Route 204 bus picks up and drops off right in front of the Lewes terminal, and provides access to Lewes, the Outlets, and Rehoboth Beach (via connection).

Update: The Lewes Line is No More

The City of Lewes ended their pilot program for the Lewes Line. DART offers service from the Cape May - Lewes Ferry Lewes Terminal. 


DART Route 204 Schedule


If you are being picked up, both terminals provide free parking, and your party can easily meet you in the parking area or in front of the terminal. Also, taxis can be called for a pick up on both sides of the bay, and Uber and Lyft are both available; if you plan to utilize taxi or Uber/Lyft service, we do recommend arranging those services in advance, as they are not always readily available.  

Can you tell me more about the ferry shuttles?

Of course we can!

In Lewes, the DART route 204 bus picks up and drops off at the Lewes terminal year-round. In Cape May, shuttles typically operate between late May and early October, and cost $6/person for anyone over 6 years of age.
