Maritime Bus provides shuttle bus service between Halifax Stanfield International Airport and select hotels in the Halifax area; the Delta Dartmouth is not on their route, but this may be a viable option for conference guests staying elsewhere in the city. For more information, call 1.800.575.1807.
