2Unfortunately public transport on PEI is pretty limited. If you can, renting a car is something to consider. I know it's more expensive, but with the few options you have with public transit, renting would make your trip a thousand times better. But if your budget requires you to go public, you do have a couple options.
Getting to PEI, there are a couple shuttle companies that go between Halifax and Charlottetown such as PEI Shuttle.
If you need to get between Charlottetown and Summerside, you can use the Charlottetown Bus System.
If you would like to get between Charlottetown and Cavendish you can use PEI tours shuttle
I've never taken the Cavendish shuttle, but I use the other companies frequently, and they are definitely reliable. For the Halifax shuttle you need to call and book in advance.

3You can get to the very heart of the Gaspe with Via Rail but if you wanted to take Via on to Halifax you would have to backtrack to Riviere de Loup (or find a way to Campbellton). Public transport is pretty poor in the Maritimes though. It might be worth your time to look into ride share, or if you could do with skipping the 5 hours of monotonous forest corridors between Edmunston and the Nova Scotia border (that is to say that taking the bus through NB is pretty boring) you could just fly.
