Alaska Bus Lines

Many visitors to Alaska from the "lower 48" are accustomed to bus lines like Greyhound or Trailways that connect towns small and large back in their home state. Alaska is not quite like that. In fact, many Alaskan communities including the state capital of Juneau are only accessible by boat or airplane.

Fortunately, many of the top places to visit in Alaska like Anchorage and Denali National Park are located along the state's main transportation corridor that runs 480 road miles from the port town of Seward on the Kenai Peninsula north to the Interior community of Fairbanks. Along this route you will find the Alaska Railroad, most of the state's major highways, and the Park Connection Motorcoach service. The Park Connection is the largest Alaska bus line offering daily scheduled service between Anchorage, Denali Park, Talkeetna, and Seward. Service is not currently offered north of Denali Park to Fairbanks, but we work with another company that provides van transfers from Denali Park to Fairbanks or the reverse.

Denali Park Bus tours are another large bus operation that is of interest to Alaska visitors. Dozens of buses head into the park each day during the summer, running popular excursions like the Kantishna Wilderness Trails bus tour, the Tundra Wilderness Tour, and the Denali Backcountry Adventure. There is only one 92-mile gravel road that goes into Denali National Park and it is closed to private vehicles.

Buses are also a popular option for cruise passengers traveling between Anchorage and the ports of Whittier or Seward. The Park Connection Motorcoach operates special runs to both cities on most major ship days. The Alaska Railroad is a popular choice as well, and the cruise lines often charter special trains and buses to transfer people back and forth. See our cruise transfers page for additional information.
