Inexpensive one way from Moncton to Fredericton?

We're flying into Moncton at the end of September to visit my Dad in Fredericton. (way too pricey to fly into Fredericton) He's not able to pick us up at the airport so we've called car rentals, limo companies, taxis etc. to see if we can find a way to Fredericton from the airport. All were prohibitively expensive. Any suggestions as to how we can do this without breaking the bank? Thanks so much.

The bus is the way I would normally suggest but you do say 'we' and that case the bus fare could be as much as the cab depending on how many of you there are. Google Moncton Cabs (not limo a regular cab) and get a quote.

A cab from Moncton to Fredericton will probably cost in the $100-$150 range. The bus is $43 one way, but the bus station in Moncton is nowhere near the airport. You'll have to cab from the airport to the bus station, and hope that your flight somewhat coincides with the two buses daily that depart Moncton to Fredericton.

Roberto confirms what I said - that if there are 2/3 of you it might be the same cost ( and much simpler) to get a cab.

Well we considered all the options and decided to fly from Toronto to Fredericton eliminating the need for the transport from Moncton. It is more expensive but I think it would have ended up being about the same cost when we figured in the price to get us from Moncton to Fredericton and then back again a week later. Thanks to all who posted. Trip Advisor really is incredibly helpful when you are travelling. I'll pay it forward.

Glad to hear you were able to find the best option for you. The Maritime provinces really doesn't have the population to support great public transportation services. Hope you have a nice visit with your dad.

Air Canada had a bit of a seat sale but no great prices to Fredericton. (great prices to Moncton though) We paid $421.77 per person from Toronto to Fredericton.

Ouch!!! We just drove to Halifax to fly to Europe as it was $600 cheaper than flying out of Fredericton. Otherwise F'ton is a very nice place!!!
