Summer Roam Public Transit Service

Give your car a vacation and leave the driving to Roam this summer!

Starting May 18, all Banff routes will lead to the Transit Hub. Catch a ride on the Banff local routes, Minnewanka route, and Banff-Canmore route, as well as the On-It Regional Transit service to Calgary – all from the Banff High School stop.

Because Route 2 will go to the Transit Hub, the Wolf and Beaver stop and Otter Street stop will be moved. Look for the new stops at Moose & Muskrat North and Moose & Muskrat South.

There will also be 20-minute frequency to Sulphur Mountain and 30-minute frequency to Tunnel Mountain/Banff Springs Hotel. Buses will depart for Lake Minnewanka starting at 8 a.m. on the hour, then every 30 minutes after 10:30 a.m.

You can also take transit to the Cave & Basin on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays and daily starting June 15.

Roam to Banff’s main destinations for $2!
