ROAM Public Transit

While Banff can easily be experienced on foot, there is also the Roam bus service, Canada’s first all-hybrid electric community bus service, to expedite your movement around town. Bus tickets are sometimes included with your accommodation, and Roam now features a bus route to the neighbouring town of Canmore. Taxis are also easily found throughout town.
