For transportation around the Glacier area, nothing can beat the shuttles, buses and tours available for visitors coming to enjoy the spectacular scenery and natural wonders of Glacier National Park.
National Park Shuttle Bus
Glacier National Park offers free transport to visitors to the park, allowing access to many destinations along the Going to the Sun Highway that bisects the park. This gives tourists the opportunity to see the park without having to fight traffic or experiencing parking problems. Simply park at Apgar Transit Center or St. Mary Visitor Center and hop on a shuttle.
Shuttles along the Going to the Sun Highway run every 15 or 30 minutes depending on time of day. The service is available between 7 am and 7 pm. There is two-way service between Apgar Center and St. Mary Visitor Center. Each bus stop provides interpretive and educational information about Glacier National Park, and here you can also find bus schedules posted.
Some of the most popular stops are Sprague Creek Campground on the shore of Lake McDonald, Lake McDonald Lodge, Avalanche Creek, Logan Pass, St. Mary Falls Shuttle Stop and Rising Sun Boat Dock. At each stop there are many activities, such as day hikes, boat tours, horseback riding and/or ranger programs.
It is possible to access other destinations within the park like Many Glacier, Cut Bank Creek and Two Medicine. You can take Glacier Park Inc.’s fee-based shuttles. Find their schedule here.
