Carpool Service between the Halifax Airport (YHZ) and Lunenburg

Boxwood will again coordinate carpool runs between the Halifax airport and Lunenburg on Sunday 7/19 and Sunday 7/26. This information will be shared on our Members Site where participants can connect with each other directly via a forum to work out shared transportation and lodging. We’ll help get you down to Lunenburg by arranging carpools or using shared van and taxi services. So let us know your travel plans! We can either assist you with arranging a ride or, if you have a car,asking for your assistance with transportation if you have a car. Those using a shared taxi or van service can expect the fare to be $25-$30 each way, and you’ll pay your driver directly.
