Launching a New Bedford Ferry

  • Investing $3.3 million to commence the design phase of the new Bedford ferry terminal and to explore technology options for an electric or hybrid-electric ferry.
  • Approving funding to launch a new Bedford ferry service upon completion of the design phase.

Commuters and recreational travelers are already making a green choice when they decide to take one of Nova Scotia’s public ferries. We will take the impact of their choice to the next level by including ferries in our public transit electrification strategy and transitioning away from diesel powered vessels. It is expected that an electric or hybrid-electric ferry will reduce GHG emissions by approximately 3,000 tonnes annually.

The Liberal government invested $3.3 million to commence the design phase of the new Bedford ferry terminal and to explore technology options for an electric or hybrid-electric ferry. Upon completion of this phase, a Rankin government will approve funding to build and launch this new Bedford ferry service. This will remove thousands of cars from the highways to downtown Halifax easing congestion, reducing emissions, and improving traffic flow.
