Leave the car for the day and catch public transit where you can in Banff National Park.

Parking in Banff

The Town of Banff is only 4-square-kilometres in area, making walking and cycling the best way to get around. Parking is limited in the downtown core, park in the Train Station Public Parking Lot for up to 9 hours. It’s free and less than a 10-minute walk to downtown Banff. Additionally Roam Public Transit serves the entire town and connects with all major attractions in Banff National Park, with stops near major parking areas.

Find a Banff parking map (including RVs) and current capacity of Banff parking lots on the Town of Banff’s parking page.

Paid parking is in effect in downtown Banff, and is best for short-term parking. Visit the Town of Banff website for further details. 

Parking in Lake Louise

Visit Parks Canada for information on parking in the Lake Louise area and alternative transit options. Ensure you plan ahead with plenty of options to explore and experience Banff National Park for the day, or arrange a longer stay in the area, to give you more flexibility.
For RVs, roadside parking in Lake Louise is limited. Find RV parking behind the Husky gas station in the village of Lake Louise and at the Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola.

Paid parking will be in effect at the Lake Louise Lakeshore from May to October. Visit the Parks Canada website for further details.
