Glacier National Park Area Shuttles, Taxis, Ubers + More

Local Tip: Consider booking a tour where Glacier National Park transportation is included, or renting a car. While the beauty in the park is endless, the Glacier National Park transportation public options are far from plentiful. These are especially limited before July 1 and after Labor Day. Know before you go!

Getting Around Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park Driving Tours:

Red Bus Tours

The famous Red Buses serve as an ideal way to see and learn more about Glacier National Park. In fact, the vintage 1930s buses are part of the human history and heritage of the park. As much of the park’s scenery is vertically oriented, the roll-back tops are perfect for providing full views of the stunning mountains, and the area’s signature Big Sky. The guides are seasoned park veterans, who are here because they love the park and enjoy sharing the park with visitors.  855-733-4522

Sun Tours

Sun Tours operates from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, which borders the eastern half of Glacier National Park. Sun Tours offers daily interpretive tours through Glacier National Park over the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Blackfeet Country.  Guides offer valuable insights on natural features and the cultural relevance — past and present — of this incredibly beautiful land known to the Blackfeet as “The Backbone of the World.” 1-800-786-9220

What About Uber And Lyft?

In our corner of Montana, Uber are Lyft are available, but not particularly consistent outside of the Airport-Whitefish-Kalispell-Columbia Falls “town” areas — and even there, you should expect longer than average wait times, especially at odd hours. In most areas of Glacier National Park you likely won’t have enough cell service to order a driver, and even if you do, there’s no guarantee one will be willing to drive so far from “town” to pick you up. So, while it’s possible to use Uber/Lyft in our area, we definitely recommend using them for airport and town needs, and making shuttle reservations to travel to Glacier.

What about Turo?

Turo Car-sharing is available in The Flathead Valley, prices ranging on average from $50-$70/day for unlimited travel.
