Transportation to Valdez

by slsbrown Online Now Jul 13, 2009 at 3:00 PM

What is the best way to get to Valdez from Anchorage? I'm staying for 2 weeks, so a rental car is very expensive. Is there a bus or a shuttle? Is there a bus or train to Whittier where I can take the ferry?

    The Alaska Railroad runs to Whittier daily. The alaska Marine highway runs from Whittier to Valdez.

    It's not really a cheap alternative (around320), but Era Aviation provides air service between Anchorage and Valdez. They merged with Frontier Flying Service and their flights can be booked here: http://www.frontierak.com/ or at Alaskaair.com

    That's a good point. I forgot about ERA. They occasionally have promotional fares but haven't seen any in a while. Not sure if that is because of the summer season or the merger.
