Jasper Transport Guide

There are no public transport options to get around the town of Jasper and Jasper National Park, so the best way to travel is by hire car, taxi or on foot.

How to get around Jasper

While public transport is key to get in to the Canadian Rockies mountain towns of Jasper and Banff, the compact nature of Jasper means there are no local public transport services. The train and bus stations, which are coupled together on Connaught Drive, is where you will need to go to get anywhere further afield. Greyhound buses routes travel to Edmonton, Vancouver and many other destinations in Canada. Popular sights such as Lake Louise are accessible using Brewster or SunDog tour transportation, which run twice daily. Metered cabs are available within the townsite for trips to suit a more custom schedule, but the compact nature of Jasper means it's easy to walk or cycle in the summer. You can also try dog sledding or cross-country skiing in the winter months. Local train company VIA is more of a sightseeing option nowadays and can be costly, however links to Vancouver and Toronto are quite handy.
