HOW TO SEE GLACIER WITHOUT A CAR

If you're traveling to the area without a vehicle, or just want to let someone else do the driving and avoid looking for a parking space on a busy day, there are plenty of options.

Once you arrive at either the Apgar Visitor Center on the west side or the St. Mary Visitor Center on the east side, you can take the free Going-to-the-Sun Road Shuttle from July 1 through Labor Day, or take a tour on a red bus or with Sun Tours.

Glacier Park Express ShuttleRuns from Whitefish to the Apgar Visitor Center four times daily.

East Side Shuttle: Runs between Glacier Park Lodge, Two Medicine, and St. Mary Lodge. From St. Mary Lodge, you can transfer to the free park shuttle on the Going-to-the-Sun Road or transfer to a Xanterra shuttle to visit Many Glacier.

By bicyclePark your car at Glacier Guides in West Glacier and rent a bicycle to ride the 1.5-mile bicycle trail (all downhill!) to the Apgar Visitor Center. It's also half the cost to enter the park on bike or foot than in a vehicle.

Once in the park, there are two guided tour bus options in addition to the free shuttle. Both companies also offer pickup locations outside the park gates.
