One of the most frequent questions I get here at Ottawa Road Trips is “How do I get to such-and-such a destination without a car?”
Believe me, I sympathize with the question, as my husband and I voluntarily lived without a car for seven years!
So here’s some good news for all of you who don’t drive, don’t have a car or would simply like to leave the driving to others: A company called Parkbus is offering round-trip bus transportation to Algonquin Park on the weekend of September 22 to 24, 2017.
This isn’t a tour; the bus drops passengers at trailheads, outfitters, campgrounds and other convenient spots, and then you’re on your own until it comes back on Sunday. The round-trip fare from Ottawa is $79 for adults, and there are other fares for seniors, students and children.
