i catch Roam regional service twice a day, 4 days a week for work. Reliable 95% of the time. Occasionally there can be serious delays of up to 20mins. Doesn't sound bad, except for when its -20C and snowing! A good tip is to check on the website for the real-time bus locations.

Convenient, Comfortable and Cheap Way to Get Around Banff and Surroundings Without a Car
Sep 2020 • Solo
Although some routes aren’t running this year ROAM is still a convenient and comfortable way to get around the Banff area. The shuttles to Lake Louise and Moraine Lake connect car-less hikers like myself to some of the best trails in the park at a reasonable rate of $20 round trip. I do wish everyone was on the same page re: their policies though. As you don’t book a specific return trip I was advised by the driver one morning to not wait for the last bus back as it could be full and I’d be stranded there. As a result, I cut short the hike I’d planned my entire trip around so that I, along with dozens of others, could line up in the parking lot for fear of being stuck there overnight only to find out from the other driver that they send more buses if the last scheduled one fills up! They should either book specific times or make their pick up policy transparent so that people don’t fly across the country to see Banff’s stunning natural beauty only to spend half their vacation sitting in parking lots having a panic attack! But it is a great service and deserves full marks.

Great way to get around
Aug 2020
We had very courteous service from Sylvie M. She answered our questions nicely even though she likely gets asked many times a day. The hotel gave us a schedule for the bus and it was very accurate. Pricing is good and it saves you from trying to fight for a parking spot.

Best value and friendly service.

The drivers are the best, always helping you find things and places in Banff. You do not have to worry about parking or driving, just enjoy the sights. They connect with Canmore and Lake Louise as well.

Amazing frequency

The pocket friendly bus takes you to multiple areas. The driver helps you to pay for the travel. The areas covered are diverse and nearly the entire town and nearby areas are very well connected in the route.
