Whitefish Montana Public Transportation, Buses, Transit

Public Transportation


Due to its small size, Whitefish bus options are limited. However there’s one local bus route, plus more options if you’re looking to travel to a surrounding town or Glacier Park.

Is there a public bus system that I should use to get around town?

Because Whitefish is only 4.4 square miles, Eagle Transit is the only bus route through town. But it’s important to remember that Whitefish can be easily covered on foot or bike.

If you are staying in Whitefish and are looking for airport transportation, a shuttle to Fernie Alpine Resort in British Columbia or a daily bus route to one of the surrounding towns like Kalispell or Columbia Falls, you’re in luck.
