Getting Around

Add to my moments


Drive your own car or rent a car from a rental car service in the town of Banff. You will need a Parks Pass while visiting Banff National Park - you can purchase a pass online or when entering the park. 


The town of Banff has on-street parking and four off-street parking locations. Parking is free, but subject to posted time restrictions. 

For more information on parking in Banff, please see the town of Banff’s website. They also have a mobile site with live information about parking availability. 

Public transit

In the town of Banff, “Roam” is a hybrid bus with regular services throughout the town and the Bow Valley. Refer to their website for information about routes, schedules and fares. The buses are wheelchair friendly and can carry bikes, skis and snowboards, and strollers.

Walking and Biking

The town of Banff and hamlet of Lake Louise are great for getting around by bike or foot, with lots of sidewalks and dedicated bike paths. You can rent bikes from several places in Banff & Lake Louise - maybe take a tandem bike for a spin with your best buddy.


There is a hop-on and hop-off bus option to get you to a number of sites and attractions within Banff National Park like Johnston Canyon, Lake Louise, the hamlet of Lake Louise, Lake Louise Ski Resort and Moraine Lake. The school bus runs from May to October.


Taxis service the Banff & Lake Louise area 24 hours a day. They can be found at several taxi stands in the town of Banff, or hailed on the street or by phone. 

Complimentary shuttles

Many hotels run a complimentary shuttle service for guests. During the ski season there is a shuttle running between most hotels and the three ski hills: Lake Louise Ski Resort, Mt Norquay and Sunshine Village. Pick up a map and bus schedule at the Banff or Lake Louise Visitor Information Centres
