    Roam Bus

    by shavy Written Jul 12, 2014

    Even though Banff townsite is small but there are buses running around the center. Banff has an extensive public transit bus system that runs through town for $2 a ride. It connects up with all the area hotels and attractions. Transportation is available every day between 7:00 am and 11:00 pm. Roam Bus passes are available at the hotel front desk and are good for your entire stay

    Bus routes include great highlights like: Downtown shops, restaurants, boutiques, Tunnel Mountain area, Hidden Ridge Resort, Banff upper Hot Springs, Banff Gondola,Tunnel Mountain trail head, Castle in the Rockies, Banff Springs Hotel

    Bus station in Banff

    by GentleSpirit Written Apr 22, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Greyhound operates buses to Banff from the station at 327 Railway Avenue.
    It used to share the bus terminal with the local tour bus company until a few years ago.
    Honestly, checking the greyhound site it seemed a whole lot easier to take the shuttle bus to Calgary and go from there. (1.75 hours, $27)

    Banff Public Transport- ROAM

    by GentleSpirit Updated Apr 15, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Banff is very walkable, however, it's nice to have a bus when necessary.
    I was forewarned that the local buses are normally 10 minutes late (on average) at the time of my visit. They left the downtown center more or less on time, but coming the other way was usually late.

    A quick way to get to the HI hostel and the gondola.
    There is now a real time GPS information at 10 bus stops that will tell you the exact location of the bus, nice!

    To pay the $2 fare you may use Canadian or US currency.

    Bus- Winter Schedules

    by GentleSpirit Updated Feb 8, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Around the last week of September the public bus schedules change to winter schedules
    (fewer buses and longer in between). This happened to me...
    Ask the bus driver to make sure about the schedule.....it seems they don't always update the printed schedules at the stops as promptly.
