The following link gives details of some options for public transportation
from Calgary to Waterton.
There is a very expensive $360 option to take you direct from the Calgary
Also there is the multi stage route:
(a) Airport Shuttle to downtown Calgary
(b) Greyhound from Calgary to Pincher Creek. There is one bus daily and this
leaves Calgary at 11:00 pm and gets into Pincher Creek at 01:55 am. Really
(c) Taxi for the 35 miles from Pincher Creek to Waterton
>From this link there's also a link to the Waterton to East Glacier public
transportation service which can drop you off at the Chief Mountain customs
post if you plan to take that route. For the High route you just walk down
the lakeshore trail from the Waterton Townsite. You can get your Glacier
Park Permit from the Waterton Park Visitor Centre. You have to watch the
wildlife dangers video (they don't warn you about aggressive grouse) and
they phone the permit request through to Glacier NP.
In the past we have taken CDT hikers from Calgary to the border in our car
(a 3.5 hour drive) but at the moment we cannot promise that for mid June
