Getting Around

Bus

Season: June - August | Operating Daily $49 - $109 per person

What’s an afford­able, com­fort­able, and reli­able way to get around the Kenai Penin­su­la? Just hop aboard one of Alas­ka Bus Company’s 27-pas­sen­ger shut­tle bus­es! This sum­mer­time-only ser­vice runs 7 days a week. The 5‑hour route runs in both direc­tions between the Anchor­age air­port and the charm­ing town of Homer, stop­ping in Gird­wood, Coop­er Land­ing, and Soldotna.

Glac­i­er Val­ley Tran­sit is the local bus ser­vice that oper­ates in Gird­wood, AK. It’s a great option to get from the Gird­wood Train Depot to restau­rants, shops, trails, and lodging.
