Getting Here and Around
Fredericton is a little way north of the Trans-Canada Highway (Route 2), with four exits to choose from. Coming from the west, Exit 280 onto Route 8 is best; from the east take Exit 294 onto Route 7. Fredericton has an excellent bus service, operating Monday to Saturday 6:15 am to 11 pm; fares are C$2.25 or 10 trips for C$20, and exact change is required.
Downtown Queen Street runs parallel to the river and has several historic sights and attractions. Most major sights are within walking distance of one another. Bike rentals are available from Savage’s on King Street and Radical Edge on Westmorland, and the city has a network of trails through parks and along the river. Dressed in 18th-century costumes, actors from the Calithumpians Theatre Company conduct free historical walks three times a day, from Canada Day (July 1) to Labor Day. The tours start at city hall at 10 am, 2:30 pm, and 5 pm and last about an hour. After dark, actors lead a Haunted Hike (C$14) through historic neighborhoods and ghostly graveyards. Check at the City Hall Visitor Information Centre for details.
