Transportation for the Glacier Park Area
Our area’s “taxi” service to bring you wherever you need to go. Most people rely on this as a way to get from the airport to West Glacier (not necessarily going all the way over to the east-side of the park – $$$). Reservations highly recommended. 800-829-7039
A taxi service that serves the greater Flathead Valley. Kalispell, Columbia Falls, Whitefish, West Glacier, and Bigfork. Advanced reservations recommended. 406-250-3603

Tamarack Lodge Bike Rentals
Located in Coram, just 8 miles west of West Glacier, you can rent mountain bikes by the hour or the day. A great way to see Glacier in the off season when the roads are closed to vehicles, but still open to hikers and cyclists.
*LOCAL TIP: Public transportation in the Glacier area can be very difficult (especially on the east-side of Glacier Park). There are definitely more options for visitors during the peak summer season (July 4th- Labor Day). Car rentals or multi-day tours (where transportation is included) are highly recommended.
