Transportation/Getting 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 and reach other out of town destinations. Car rental companies like National and Budget are available in town and taxis also service the Cranbrook area.


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


Biking is also another great way to get around town and out to other attractions. There is a great paved trail network from Cranbrook to Kimberley along the North Star 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 Warden and is a great way to see the scenery south of Kimberley. Don't have your own bike? Gerick Sports offers bike rentals from downtown Cranbrook.


Cranbrook is easy to get to with flights into the Canadian Rockies International Airport (XYC). Major carriers offer daily flights into the city from their international hubs in Vancouver and Calgary. While smaller air carriers offer daily flights from Kelowna, Victoria, and Vancouver. New flights on WestJet now link the community of Cranbrook to the communities of Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, and, Prince George.
