We're heading to Stanley Bridge from Maryland to Boston Mass., Brunswick Maine, Bar Harbor Maine, and St. John Canada. We look forward to a great week together. --Dave and Conni

I'm arriving in Charlottetown after 9 PM the 20th. Anyone need to share a taxi to Stanley Bridge? Barbara Darnall, Richardson, Texas
Nancy Phillips Jul 13, 2013 at 01:52 PM

My husband and I will be taking a taxi on the 21st. We would be happy to share a cab if you are going that day. We don't arrive until 12:30am on the 21st, so we will be staying at the Comfort Inn that night. I just called the taxi company and they said the rate is $61.00 total (not per person) which is different than what the Road Scholar info says. I hope the taxi company is right!

Hi David! I went on this trip 2 years ago, so I won't be joining you. It's a great trip but VERY inactive. If walking is important to you, you may want to choose a more active trip. However, it was very well done and the landscapes were beautiful. I'm going to the west coast this year!

David & Veronica James Apr 16, 2013 at 01:05 PM

Excited to be taking this adventure on July 21st! Who else is going?
Nancy Phillips Jul 08, 2013 at 06:40 PM

My husband and I are looking forward to our first Road Scholar adventure. We're from Huntington Beach, CA. Where are you from?

Donna Basile Jul 14, 2011 at 05:05 PM

I need a ride from Charlottestown to Stanley Bridge on Sunday, August 14th. I am arriving on the 13th so any time on the 14th would be fine. If you can give me a ride, I will be happy to pay for gas and if you're taking a taxi, maybe we can share one. Thanks a lot!

Donna-- I did this program two years ago this month, and loved it! My main challenge was the one you've described, viz., getting from Charlottetown to Stanley Bridge. We ended up biting the bullet and taking a taxi. But it was worth it. There's a video of our group you might enjoy on YouTube. Here's the url. Just cut and paste in in your browser. And enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LDMYxxNw-0

Donna, I will be arriving very late on August 13 and want to share a ride to Stanley Bridge. I'd be happy to share a taxi with you. I'll be staying at Comfort Inn , 112 Capital Dr., Charlottetown, phone 902-566-4424.
Donna Basile Jul 31, 2011 at 09:39 PM

Sarah, That would be great! I'm staying at the Best Western on Saturday the 13th. I'll call you on Sunday morning the 14th. My cell is: 646-300-4451- just in case. I'm in Montreal 'till the 13th-- what a great summer. Donna PS thank you (merci bien)
Donna Basile Aug 10, 2011 at 09:11 PM

Got your message on my phone, Sarah. Will call you on the 14th. Donna

My husband and I need to share costs of bus/taxi from Charlottetown, P.E. to Stanley Bridge on Sept. 19. Also return to Charlottetown on Sept. 25 when program ends. Please contact me if you are interested. We've found a bus for $82.00 each way, so if we get 2, each couple pays $41. Or, we can rent a car for about $250 for the week, at $125 per couple. Interested? Pam & Mike Mueller
