Anchorage's public transit system, People Mover, provides easy access to most tourist attractions and places of interest. The buses run between roughly 6.30am and 9pm on weekdays, with limited service until about 11pm, but travellers should note that operating times vary by route, and that service is reduced on weekends. Maps and schedules are available from the People Mover Transit Center on 6th Avenue. Adult bus fare starts at $2. Day passes are available and good value for money if you will be sightseeing all day.
Some tourist attractions provide free shuttles to and from downtown Anchorage, where many of the hotels are situated. There are also taxis, rental cars and rental bicycles available.
