Are local buses, trams, trains or taxis safe and affordable?

Yes. My teenagers use the buses alone all of the time. US $2 for under 15 years old and $4 for adults per trip. We walk, bike, bus all of the time during good weather. - Sep 2020

Yes and yes. There is no Uber or other car share service here, but local taxis have created apps that mimic the service. I've heard gripes about the convenience of the local bus system, but plenty use it and it is safe and reliable. There is also North America's oldest continues public saltwater ferry service plying between downtown Halifax and Dartmouth across the harbor. Plan to have a car to get around rather than relying on public transportation. - May 2018
