For the first time since COVID-19 hit, shuttle service at Glacier National Park is back!
The news ought to put some minds at ease for Glacier visitors, since all the park requires vehicles to be registered before being allowed on Going-To-The-Sun road, and those passes have all been sold out since March.

If you didn't (or couldn't) (or didn't want to) plan a trip to the park 120 days in advance, you could always check the website at 8am the day before your trip to see if any new ones are available, but who wants to go through that kind of hassle?

Instead, enjoy the shuttle! It's free and offers trips from Agpar Visitor Center at the west entrance all the way to Avalanche Creek

Catching the shuttle comes with its own "catch": it's first-come-first-served, albeit without a reservation. So if you want to skip the vehicle registration and hike/bike Glacier, the shuttle is a nice alternative for those of us that want to enjoy Glacier and save a happy buck.
