Transportation/Getting To and Around Cranbrook

One of the great things about Cranbrook is that it isn't too big. This makes it easy to get around town and explore the area.


Your own vehicle is a great way to move around town in a short period of time, as well as reach other out of town destinations. However, you can also rent a car once here.


Cranbrook is easy to get to with flights into the Canadian Rockies International Airport (XYC). Carriers offer daily flights into the city from their international hubs in Vancouver and Calgary.

Rental Cars

Car rental companies Enterprise and Budget are available with locations within city limits and at the Canadian Rockies International Airport.

Taxi Companies

Cranbrook has two taxi services which operate within city limits and to the Canadian Rockies International Airport. Star Taxi can be reached at 250-426-5511 and Key City Cabs can be reached at 250-426-1111.

Charter Shuttle Services

Have a larger group in need of a ride? Simply Kimberley serves the Cranbrook and Kimberley area with their 11, 14, 16 and 24-passenger vans and buses. 

Public Transit

BC Transit operates a bus service that also runs around the downtown and to neighbouring areas in town.

Looking to get to Cranbrook from a nearby community? BC Transit also offers the Kimberley/Cranbrook Connector, as well as buses from Creston, Fernie/Sparwood/Elkford and Invermere/Golden. *Note: the Creston, Columbia Valley and Elk Valley buses give priority to those travelling for non-emergency medical appointments, though free spaces will be given to the general public.

Coach Lines

Mountain Man Mike's Bus Service offers a bus line between Kaslo and Calgary, heading east towards Calgary every Monday and going west every Tuesday. A detailed schedule with stops can be found here.


Biking is also another great way to get around town and out to other attractions. There is an excellent paved trail network from Cranbrook to Kimberley along the Northstar Rails to Trails network, offering a scenic and beginner-friendly way to explore the areas outside the downtown core. Another packed gravel trail, Chief Isadore Trail, runs from Cranbrook to Wardner and is a great way to see the scenery south and east of Cranbrook. Don't have your own bike? Northstar Bicycle Co. offers bike rentals from their north Cranbrook location.
