Bus Service in Alaska's Interior

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, you can board a van or a 20-passenger bus to travel Interior Alaska Bus Lines’ route. It’s a true locals experience—this is the bus that rural Alaskans ride—and it gives you a great opportunity to connect with real Alaskans. As you traverse less-direct routes than the tourist buses, you’ll have the opportunity to visit remote locations that you could only see if you rented a car—places like Mentasta, Midway, Slana, Glennallen, Eureka, Delta Junction, and Northway. Sit up front and your driver may even point things out along the way!

There’s no restroom on board, but there are plenty of scheduled stops, and you’ll be able to take additional bathroom breaks if needed. Stops along the way are often gas stations or lodges, so you’ll have opportunities to grab food as well.


Schedule: Operates year-round on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Vehicles: Each route has two vehicles: a 12-passenger van with van seating and a 20-passenger bus, with 2 seats on each side of an aisle.
