Shuttle Information

For visitors travelling to Glacier without a vehicle, Glacier Park, Inc. and Glacier National Park offer limited shuttle systems around the park.

Operated by Glacier Park, Inc., the East Side Shuttle travels the East side of Glacier National Park from Glacier Park Lodge, to the Prince of Wales Hotel. On the East Side Shuttle, guests can connect with the National Park Service Shuttle, which runs the length of the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The National Park Service Shuttle is complimentary, while seats on the East Side Shuttle are available for a small fee.

Grouse Mountain Lodge, is our only property which offers complimentary shuttle service to and from Glacier Park International Airport and the Whitefish Amtrak Station as well as to and from Downtown Whitefish.

Glacier Park Shuttles

Glacier National Park’s free shuttle service on the Going-to-the-Sun Road is scheduled to operate July 1st through Labor Day, weather permitting. The transit system provides complimentary two-way service along Going-to-the-Sun Road between the Apgar Visitor Center and St. Mary Visitor Center. On the west side from the Apgar Visitor Center to Logan Pass, buses run every 30 minutes and every 40 to 60 minutes on the east side. Due to the popularity of the system, shuttles fill up quickly. Seating capacity is limited and you may need to wait for the next shuttle.
Once visitors reach their destinations, shuttle stops feature interpretive and educational information regarding the history and features of the park, Podcasting opportunities, and family-fun activities to help pass the time.
