Alaska Motorcoach & Bus Lines
Yes, it's the bus, but if you don't want to rent a car and if you're looking to avoid the high cost of the train, this is the way to go. You won't find Greyhound up here, rather a series of small bus companies that can get you to most of the highlights with not too much discomfort.
Actually, some of the buses are really luxurious greyhound-sized ones. But there are also smaller coach and van links between many of the towns. With the exception of Seward to Anchorage and Anchorage to Denali (which is served by both types), usually the vans make the runs to the smaller towns. The buses tend to be more luxurious. The vans are more intimate.

Coach transportation between towns and city busses
This is your chance to travel like the locals! Many Alaskans ride this bus line that motors between Anchorage, Glennallen, Fairbanks, and Tok, making stops along the way in off-the-beaten-path destinations. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, you can board a van or a 20-passenger bus to travel Interior Alaska Bus Lines’ route.
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.
The only same-day service between Seward and Denali National Park! Enjoy the ride aboard a deluxe motorcoach with comfortable seats, picture windows, in-seat power outlets, and an onboard restroom.

Smaller shuttles on specific transportation routes in town.
Coming to Denali on the train or by motorcoach? Don’t sweat the transportation once you’re here — just hop on the Sheep Shuttle! As amazing as Denali is, getting around the area can be tricky if you don’t arrive by car. With sheep shuttle you can access local restaurants, shops, and hotels beyond the immediate park entrance area.
Traverse the majesty of Exit Glacier by ice hiking or ice climbing, or opt for a nature hike in the gorgeous terrain around Seward, Alaska. Never ice climbed or hiked on a glacier? Not a problem. All trips include instruction to get you started.
