Pedestrian & Cyclists
Due to safety concerns, pedestrians and cyclists are not permitted on the Confederation Bridge. To accommodate these users, Bridge personnel operate a shuttle service on a load-and-go schedule, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. This shuttle contains ample room for baggage and bicycles.
Passengers are asked to notify Bridge Control of their arrival using the direct telephone lines located at the shuttle drop-off locations in both Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. In order to better accommodate larger groups, please contact Bridge Control at 902.437.7349 in advance of your arrival. Please note that children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult for the crossing.
The Confederation Bridge pedestrian shuttle operates between two locations:
- The Confederation Bridge Operations Building located at 104 Abegweit Boulevard in Gateway Village, Borden-Carleton, PE
- The Cape Jourimain Nature Centre located off exit 51 on NB-16E at the foot of the Confederation Bridge in Cape Jourimain, NB
Bridge shuttle personnel will collect round-trip fees of $4.25 per pedestrian and $8.50 per cyclist prior to departing Prince Edward Island. Note that fees are not collected when travelling from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island.
Your pedestrian/cyclist shuttle does not operate on a set schedule. Approximately how long can I expect to wait to cross?
On average, pedestrians and cyclists can expect to wait approximately 30 minutes for a shuttle crossing. This wait time can fluctuate from as short as ten minutes to as long as two hours depending on time of day, the number of passengers requiring service, and travel conditions on the bridge.
Are pets permitted on the shuttle?
Pets, with the exception of guide dogs for the visually and hearing impaired, are not permitted on the shuttle.
I wish to leave my vehicle in Prince Edward Island/New Brunswick and take the shuttle across the bridge. Where can I park?
When travelling from Prince Edward Island, ample parking is available within Gateway Village in Borden-Carleton. In New Brunswick, shuttle users may utilize the gravel parking lot located across the street from the Cape Jourimain Nature Centre. Please note that these lots are not owned or monitored by Strait Crossing Bridge Limited and parking is at your own risk.
