Ground Transportation and Shuttles
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. Weekend shuttle service typically begins on/about Memorial Day weekend, with daily shuttle service beginning in mid-June and running through Labor Day weekend. 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.
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).
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.
In both Cape May (seasonally) and Lewes (year-round), Avis/Budget Rental Cars are available. For availability, details, pricing, and additional information, please be sure to contact Avis/Budget directly.
Can you tell me more about the ferry shuttles?
Of course we can!
Ferry shuttles operate on seasonal schedules and provide service to and from the town of Cape May. In Lewes, the DART route 204 bus picks up and drops off at the Lewes terminal year-round. In Cape May, shuttles typcially operate between late May and early October, and cost $5/person for anyone over 6 years of age. Due to limited seating, reservations are required, and you should book your shuttle before you board the ferry by speaking with a Customer Service representative. Occasionaly there are some, limited off season shuttles particularly for specific event packages. For details on shuttle routes, please click here to learn more.
