Transportation Resources

Juneau enjoys a splendid setting between the alpine peaks of the Tongass National Forest and the Pacific waters of the Inside Passage. It is the largest American city, and the nation’s only state capital, that is not on the continental road system. Uniquely, the city is accessible only by air and water.

The city has year-around daily jet service to Seattle and Anchorage, and regionally to Yakutat, Cordova, Ketchikan, Sitka, Wrangell and Petersburg. Commuter airlines provide daily service between Juneau and other surrounding communities. The city is served by the Alaska Marine Highway System, with service from Bellingham, WA, and throughout the region. Capital Transit offers daily bus service in the city and its suburbs. Freight and bulk goods are delivered twice weekly by barge.

How to get to Juneau

Care-A-Van Transportation: The Care-A-Van Transportation Service is operated by Southeast Senior Services, a division of Catholic Community Service.  Care-A-Van is designed to assist senior citizens (age 60 and over) and people of any age who are unable to use the Capital Transit bus due to a disability. Care-A-Van takes passengers anywhere in Juneau they would like to go—to the doctor, to the store, to work, to school, for example—though it does not travel past the ferry terminal.  All Care-A-Van vehicles are wheelchair accessible.  Door-to-door transportation is offered the same hours as the Capital Transit bus system. 

The Care-A-Van service provides prescheduled transportation only.  Please call the office to arrange a ride.  Office hours are listed on the Care-a-Van website. Contact Care-a-Van 907-463-6194
