Located at Mile 0.75 on the Denali Park Road, the Denali Bus Depot is operated by our concessioner, Doyon/ARAMARK Joint Venture.

You can purchase bus tickets, make campground reservations, and check in for existing bus and campground reservations here. All transit buses and some of the narrated tour buses depart from this location.The Bus Depot also sells coffee, snacks, and souvenirs in a small gift shop.

Dates and Hours of Operation

The Bus Depot is open each year from May 20 to mid-September. For most of the summer, it is open 5:30 am to 7 pm daily for bus tickets, bus departures, and coffee. Hours may vary during shoulder seasons.

If you arrive after 7 pm and need to check into a campground or pick up bus tickets, you can do so until 11 pm at the Riley Creek Mercantile, located in Riley Creek Campground.
