There are lots of tourists in Waterton and you might get a ride.  There
also is a shuttle service departs Waterton (Tamarack Outdoor Outfitters)
with the Canadian Chief mountain Shuttle to the Chief Mountain Border
Crossing with a 14:30 departure
Walk across the border and clear United States Customs with your luggage
15:45 Board Glacier Park Inc "East Side Shuttle" on the US side of the
border to your destination in Glacier National Park
For reservations with the Chief mountain Shuttle please phone the
Tamarack Outdoor Store at 403-859-2378 or email
For information/possible reservations on the East Side Shuttle from
Chief Mountain Border Crossing, phone in Canada 403-236-3400, in the US
406-892-2525
The fare to Chief Mountain border is CAD$20 per person, with a minimum
charge of $60 if there is less than 3 people on the shuttle.
>From the border you would want to ride to the St Mary Visitor Center and
then take the free shuttle to the West Side of the park.  This means you
would need to transfer at Logan Pass.  It might be too late that day to
catch the shuttle from Logan Pass you need to inquire when the last bus
leaves Logan Pass.
Getting a ride or rides may be your best bet and it would help if you
could get a ride early in the morning from Waterton to the St Mary
Visitor Center and then take the shuttle.
You can get on line to get more info

Hi all!
I have a question. I am going to need to get from Waterton Lake Canada
to Kalispell when I finish the trail. I can pretty much finish any
number of days early but my flight to my Mom's birthday in Vegas leave
Kalispell Sept 9th. Being an early morning flight I would need to be in
Kalispell by the 8th.
My question is: does Greyhound go directly from Waterton Lake to
Kalispell?
If not how about East Glacier to Kalispell?
Yogi's guide mentions the "Empire Builder" Amtrak but it seems unclear
if that goes direct from Waterton to Kalispell.
What about a hitch from E Glacier?
I know this might seem lazy asking a bunch of questions but I am on
trail and need to find out how much time/when I might stay at motels so
I can book them soon(It's way cheaper in advance).
Any and all advice appreciated!
Thanks! -Iceaxe

Matt,

Glacier Park, Inc. runs the East Side Shuttle from Prince of Wales 
Hotel (Waterton) to East Glacier for $50 - see 
http://www.glacierparkinc.com/images/_userfiles/files/GPI_Shuttle.pdf

Glacier Park, Inc. East Side Shuttle also stops at St. Mary's ($30), 
where GNP runs shuttles from St. Mary's to Apgar, ending Sept 6th.

Many thanks for the info Bob and Jeff!
I am kinda flying blind as those Delorme atlas pages are in my final map
drop going to Helena.
Wow, right now I am high atop the divide 26 miles north of Bannock Pass.
I can see why my SoBo buddies were waxing nostalgic when the spoke about
where they had been and where I am going. Kinda windy here and a tad bit
of drizzle from the passing clouds but the view of the mountains, made
blue by twilight, to either side of the crest here.. Wow! I think there
is some interesting trail yet ahead. 
Thanks So much for the help!
Cheers- Iceaxe
