Apgar Transit Center

The Apgar Transit Center complex provides visitors with basic information on visiting the park and is the hub for Glacier's free shuttle bus service. Exhibits and displays at the Apgar Transit Center provide information needed to plan your day along the Going-to-the-Sun Road using the shuttle. Additionally, information on hiking, camping, and other areas of the park is available. For more in-depth information or to speak with a ranger about your visit to Glacier National Park, the Apgar Visitor Center is just a short walk away.

The Apgar Transit Center is designed and built in an environmentally friendly fashion resulting in energy efficiency and minimal environmental impacts. Native plants, trees and soils from the building site have been reused as part of the construction process.

The Apgar Transit Center is located a couple of miles inside the park from the west entrance. If you plan on using the shuttle for a day or longer, please park your car at the parking lot here instead of other locations where parking is limited, and hop on a shuttle at the covered loading area in the plaza.


St. Mary Visitor Center

Transit service for Glacier's shuttle service is also located on the east side of Glacier National Park at the St. Mary Visitor Center. Visitors entering Glacier National Park from the east entrance and wishing to ride the shuttle should go to the St. Mary Visitor Center where exhibits and transit information is available. Rangers will also be on hand to answer trip planning questions.

Like the Apgar Transit Center, if you plan on using the shuttle for a day or longer, please park in the parking lot and hop on a shuttle at the shuttle stop near the Visitor Center.
