Our shuttle service has concluded for the 2017 summer season. We will see you on our shuttle in 2018!

Look for our FREE, DAILY shuttle service to return in the summer of 2018 (mid-May through mid-September). This shuttle operates during summer months only.

Summer Shuttle Service Description:

  • Free, daily shuttle between the zoo and downtown Anchorage during summer months only (runs mid-May through mid-September).
  • Limited space, no reservations, first-come basis.
  • Passengers are picked up DOWNTOWN AT THE 4TH AVENUE AND F STREET LOCATION and taken to the Alaska Zoo.
  • The shuttle also drops passengers off at the same downtown location.
  • The shuttle makes round trips every hour between the zoo and downtown during open zoo hours (9am-9pm June - August, 9am-6pm May and September)
  • Shuttle patrons also have the option of paying an extra fee to take one of our daily Discovery Tours (summer only, Memorial Day through Labor Day).

Travel to the zoo at other times of the year must be arranged in advance by you or the people you are traveling with. Options for your planning include taxi service, hotel shuttle or by regular car. No city bus service runs to the zoo. Check the People Mover bus schedule to see the location of the nearest stop.
