About Bus Travel
Bus Travel Tips
Make friends with the driver. They usually know a lot about your destination and may even recommend which side of the bus to sit on to get the best views on the road between Calgary and Banff!
Start sightseeing the minute your bus leaves the station. If you're on the night bus from Calgary to Banff, get comfy and count the stars.
Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from Calgary to Banff.
Tune out to the fine sounds of your best music playlist on your bus trip from Calgary to Banff while indulging in miles on end of beautiful scenic views.
