Roam in Banff National Park
Planning is underway now to provide public transit services between Banff and Lake Louise! Services will include the following new Summer routes.
Route 8X - Express service between Banff and Lake Louise via the Trans Canada Highway. Two stops in Banff (Banff High School Transit Hub, Banff Train Station) and two stops in Lake Louise (Samson Mall, and Lake Louise lake shore).
Route 8S - Scenic service between Banff and Lake Louise via the Banff Parkway Highway 1A. This more scenic trip between Banff and Lake Louise makes the same stops in Banff and Lake Louise as the 8X Express route, with additional stops along the 1A highway including Johnston Canyon Campground, Castle Mountain Campground, Castle Junction, Baker Creek Chalets, and Protection Mountain Campground.
Route 9 - Direct service between Banff and Johnston Canyon via the Banff Parkway Highway 1A. This route departs Banff (Banff High School Transit Hub, Banff Train Station) and heads straight for the canyon, with a stop at the Johnston Canyon campground.
Service is planned to begin on the Friday of the May long weekend (May 17th) with 7 day a week service throughout the summer until mid-September (Sept 15th).
Please note, there will likely be a delay in the launch of Rouite 8S and Route 9 due to early season road construction/closures. We will update all routing information along with schedules and fares as soon as possible - expected to be June 21st.
All routes will be serviced with brand new Roam transit buses, as well as brand new coach style buses with first of it's kind accessible features. All buses are air-conditioned and provide a comfortable, affordable, stress free way to experience the best of Banff National Park and the Bow Valley.
