If you’re looking to get around - depending on where you are in Alaska - public transit may be an option for getting from Point A to Point B. Public transit here can be a typical city bus moving through downtown streets to regional van service between communities, or even inter-island ferries! Be sure to check the schedules – some routes are seasonal or operate on reduced hours depending on the time of the year. Find an up-to-date list of public transit providers at the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities website.
