We loved the convenience of the Roam Buses. Literally took you everywhere in Banff. Great Service and so easy to use. Lots of pick up locations - each one with a digital sign saying when the next two pickups were scheduled. Best public transportation system ever!

We cannot emphasise how excellent this service is. We stayed at Tunnel Mountain campground for 8 days and used this service for all our travel needs, we didn’t move the RV that whole time. The system is cheap and punctual, the staff are really helpful and it’s easy to work out how it worked.

Banff are showing real leadership with this system, so many other destinations can learn from this operation. Thank you!

Nice way to get around Banff…we used it for getting to downtown Banff. Runs frequently and many places to embark or disembark.

Excellent bus service to get around Banff. Busses are every 15 minutes or so and the stops have eletronic boards showing when the next one is due. Staying at the Rimrock hotel we had a free bus pass and were able to happily come in and out of town, and took a day trip to Lake Minnewanka, using it.

The bus is amazing value for money and the “driver” gets to see all the scenery without the hassle. I parked the car for the 3 days we were in Banff because it’s not worth trying to get parked and the parking fees are high.

Took the bus from Downtown Banff to Gondola , wee bit late , but made our gondola departure time. Driver was brilliant telling us what to do to pay as we weren’t sure what to do . Cheap transport at $1 each. At moment only running every 40 minutes … could have been more frequent as bus choc a bloc !

The concierge at Fairmont Banff Springs provides free transit passes to their guests. Very handy way to get to downtown Banff and you don't have to wait very long for a bus.

We had day passes for the bus and also paid for the odd return ticket here and there, we couldn’t fault it, running on time, very friendly drivers, good times for the start and finish of service, takes you to all the places needed, even further out of town, very clean and the price is very reasonable, would happily use next time we are in Banff.

Honestly, the worst driver i have ever seen.
So, i was rushing to catch my bus because i was late. By the time i reached there i thought the gates were closed and there were 3-4 people standing outside. I just crossed all the people thinking that they were waiting for another bus, when i came in front the driver shouted at me saying something that i didn't like the way you cutted off that lady behind me and i was like i did not mean to cut off the lady i just wanted to ensure that i was on time and she was not even standing near the door then the driver was like i know people like you. This was very disgusting i could smell the rascism in him. After that i went back apologized the lady that i didnot mean to.
When i entered the bus and showed me ticked from my phone and i started waking back. And then he shouted saying hey hey youuuu where u going u need to tap your phone. I was like i never did that or nobady ever asked me to tap it but he was like but i said u have to tap. Then i just came and grabed my seat

This was the worse seen ever happened to me
