Because there is insufficient parking space available at the Cousins Island parking lot, CTC operates a satellite lot in Cumberland, Maine. The lot holds over 200 vehicles and is located on Route One in Cumberland, approximately 7 miles from the ferry.
CTC buses transport passengers from the Cumberland lot to the ferry. The bus departs from the Cumberland lot 30 minutes before ferry departure time. The bus ride is approximately 15 minutes, allowing adequate time for unloading freight and luggage.
A very limited number of bicycles can be transported on the bus. Additionally, our busses have limited space for freight. If possible, either use Casco Bay Lines very convenient freight service or, please bring bikes and large amounts of freight to Cousins Island, making sure to follow all local traffic ordinances, before parking in the satellite lot.
The bus and ferry schedule can change from time to time, so the passenger should always check the schedules in advance.
Passengers should plan to arrive at the Cumberland lot at least 10 minutes before departure time to ensure adequate time for loading freight and collecting parking fees.
