How do I get to Banff?

You can drive yourself or take the Banff Airporter shuttle bus. If you drive, remember to get the Banff National Park pass.

Parking in Banff

Most hotels let you buy overnight parking. The Banff Park Lodge charges $11 per day for overnight self-parking or $16 for valet parking. There free all day parking in some of the lots in Banff, but there isn’t any free overnight parking. Most of the parking garages are walking distance from the BPL.

Where do I stay in Banff?

The Agile Open Canada un-conference is at the Banff Park Lodge (google map). Call the Lodge directly (1-800-661-9266) to check availability. In addition to the Lodge, Banff offers a smorgasbord of hotels, so you have lots of options. Most are located in downtown Banff, a short walk from the BPL.
