Car-free holidays from Boston

The start of high-speed ferry service between Portland and Nova Scotia next month will make it possible for Boston-area residents to weekend in the Maritimes without ever getting into their cars.

Transportation officials described that possibility Tuesday when they announced that users of The Cat will be able to book travel packages that allow them to connect with buses and trains. The Cat is scheduled to begin sailing between Portland and Yarmouth on May 26.
