Truly Discover your Surroundings

The Transit is a shuttle bus system, NOT an interpretive tour. Visitors use the Transit to access park facilities and campgrounds, to reach backcountry destinations for hiking, to transport bicycles, and to simply sit back and enjoy Denali’s wildlife and scenery. Having buses transport visitors into Denali National Park & Preserve helps to protect the natural resources and reduce traffic congestion. By using the park's bus system, visitors actively support the National Park Service’s mission of preserving and protecting park resources for future generations.

The Transit is designed for visitors who would like to spend time exploring the wilderness of Denali National Park & Preserve on their own, without a tour guide. When safety conditions allow, your Transit driver will be happy to let you off the bus so you can hike, bike, search for wildflowers, take memorable photos, or relax in the tundra and listen to the land. The Transit buses are green to designate them from tour buses for your convenience.

When you would like to return to Denali’s Front Country, proceed to Park Road to safely flag down a Transit bus and enjoy the ride! Please remember that this is a transit system, meant to get visitors from point A to point B and do not include a guided narrative, as our tours do. Also, be aware that weather changes rapidly in Denali National Park & Preserve. Visitors should come prepared by carrying rain gear, an additional layer for warmth, snacks, and plenty of water.
