Shuttle: The Salt Lake Express is a shuttle providing transportation from Salt Lake City and other locations directly into West Yellowstone and back. Visit the Salt Lake Express website.
Airports: The nearest and most convenient airport to West Yellowstone is in Bozeman, MT. This is a 90-mile drive on some roads that can get rather snow-packed. Please contact our volunteer coordinator before you make your plans so that we can coordinate rides with others who might be coming in at the same time, and we’ll try to work with you to arrange your arrival and departure plans to coincide with our weekly supply run.
Greyhound: Does not serve West Yellowstone. The closest Greyhound station is Bozeman, MT. As noted above, please coordinate your arrival plans with our volunteer coordinator.
Amtrak: Doesn't come close to here. The nearest stations are Havre, MT; Whitefish, MT; and Salt Lake City, Utah. It's a long bus ride from these places to Bozeman.
Driving: If you plan to drive here in the winter, please allow yourself sufficient time, plus some extra time to travel slowly and safely, and remember that these mountain passes are often hazardous. Make sure you have good tires and either snow tires or chains. It is important for you to know that all through-roads in Yellowstone are closed to cars except for Route 191, which goes along the western park boundary.
IMPORTANT: No matter which mode of travel you choose, please call ahead (406-646-0700) so we will know when to expect you, and before you leave home check for weather conditions on the Montana Department of Transportation Road Report Map.
