Banff Jasper Collection

Getting to the Banff Gondola

As Banff’s most popular attraction, our parking lot fills quickly between the hours of 11 AM – 3 PM. For the best experience, we highly recommend taking our free shuttle service. Not only will you skip the parking lot, but you will be dropped off right at the front door of the attraction. With two convenient pick-up locations and frequent schedules throughout the day, this is the best way to visit us car-free!

The free Banff Gondola shuttle picks up from Elk + Avenue Hotel and Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. You can park on several side streets from Banff Avenue to catch the shuttle from Elk + Avenue Hotel, including Marten Street, Moose Street and Elk Street. There are also parking lots on Bear Street. The return to Downtown shuttles departs from the Banff Gondola parking lot every 20-30 minutes (depending on destination). See shuttle schedule below.

The Banff Gondola is serviced year-round by Bow Valley ROAM Transit Services. Buses run regularly, with stops along Banff Avenue. Contact ROAM Transit for information at 403.762.0606.
