Central Halifax can be covered on foot, but those who want to explore further afield are advised to hire a car. Metro Transit does provide a bus service in the city and to surrounding areas, and runs passenger ferries from the terminal at Lower Water Street to Dartmouth. Free transfers are available from the ferry to the buses. Cabs can be hailed in the downtown area, and there are taxi ranks at the largest hotels and shopping centres.
