Getting Around Banff
The Banff townsite is just 3.94 sq. kilometres, which means it's fairly easy to get around. Locals like to walk and cycle everywhere, or Roam on Banff's great public transit system. 


Walk or Bike
Roads and trails provide access to most amenities and attractions in Banff. Download the Banff Trails Map (PDF)
or find out where you can rent a bike.

Use the Bike Fix-It Station in Central Park to pump up your tires or make minor repairs. It includes several tools securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hang your bike from the arm to freely move pedals and wheels. If you need help with a repair, just scan the QR Code on the front of the station to get detailed instructions.

The Bear Street Woonerff is now open for the 2016 season.   

Take Roam Public Transit
Banff's public transit bus system gets you just about everywhere in Banff. Visit Roam's website for detailed route information, schedules and fares.

Commuters
Head to The Fenlands parking lot for longer time limit parking in the summer. Download the Banff Parking Map (PDF) for more information on other longer-term parking locations outside the downtown core.

Take a Taxi
Taxis service the Banff area 24 hours a day. Taxis may be found at numerous taxi stands in downtown Banff, hailed on the street or with a phone call.

Shuttles
Many Banff hotels offer their guests complimentary shuttle service within the Banff townsite. Inquire with individual hotels.

A free shuttle is available daily to the Sulphur Mountain Gondola. The shuttle picks up downtown at the Banff International Hotel, 333 Banff Ave. and Evelyn's Coffee Bar, 119 Banff Ave every 15 minutes between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. 

Mt. Norquay provides a free shuttle up the mountain from June 10 to October 10. See the list of locations and pickup times.

Throughout the winter, ski shuttle buses are available for transportation between Banff and the three ski areas - Norquay, Sunshine Village and the Lake Louise Ski Area.

Active Commuting
In summer 2015, locals showed us why they choose to walk, bike, skateboard or take public transit to work. Photographer Malcolm Carmichael captured some great images of how Banff residents are using active transit to get around.
