Glacier's Shuttle System
The shuttle system is scheduled to operate July 1st through September 7th, 2014, weather permitting.
In July of 2007, park visitors were able to access many destinations along the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The shuttle system was established to offer a travel option for visitors to avoid traffic and parking problems associated with rehabilitation of the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
The transit system provides two-way service along Going-to-the-Sun Road between the Apgar Transit Center and St. Mary Visitor Center. On the west side from the Apgar Transit 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 capacitly 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.
