Park Shuttle Service Begins July 1st

Glacier National Park's free, optional shuttle system that provides shuttle services along the Going-to-the-Sun Road will begin operations July 1st and run through Labor Day.

On the west-side of the park, shuttle services begin at the Apgar Transit Center. Service to all west-side shuttle stop locations begins at 9:00 a.m. with shuttles departing every 15-30 minutes until 7:00 p.m. Prior to 9:00 a.m., there is no shuttle service to Apgar Village, Apgar Campground, or Lake McDonald Lodge. Between 7:40 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., west-side shuttles will only service Sprague Creek, Avalanche Creek, The Loop, and Logan Pass shuttle stops. An express trip from the Apgar Transit Center to Logan Pass departs daily at 7:30 a.m., without intermediate stops.

The St. Mary Visitor Center is the hub for shuttle services on the east-side of the park. Shuttles begin service at 7:30 a.m. and depart every 40 to 60 minutes. The last shuttles of the day leave Logan Pass for the Apgar Transit Center and St. Mary Visitor Center at 7:00 p.m.

The shuttle system is intended to minimize impacts on visitors throughout the multi-year rehabilitation project on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. For more information on the shuttle system, please click here.
