Getting around Banff & Lake Louise

Banff & Lake Louise are extremely easy to get around. The main shopping and dining district of the town of Banff is within easy walking distance of many hotels.  In addition, several Banff lodging properties include a complimentary pass for their guests on the ROAM regional bus service.

Included in every Tri-Area lift ticket is complimentary ski shuttle service that runs regularly to all three ski resorts. This makes getting to and from the ski areas easier than ever. Leave the driving to us!

Roam Bus Service

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.
