Prevent the Spread
Be considerate. Wearing masks to protect everyone is strongly encouraged.
Avoid Traffic and Delays
Recommend visitors use the best highway exit into town to avoid traffic and delays. With several roads closed to vehicles, help them plan ahead to make their visit more fun.
Use the Banff Avenue/Minnewanka exit for:
• Visitors checking into hotels or camping.
Use the Norquay Road exit for:
• Day visitors to access parking at the Train Station Public Parking Lot. It’s free and parking is allowed there for 9 hours. It’s just an 8 minute walk to downtown Banff.
• Visitors accessing destinations across the bridge.
Remind campers camping at Tunnel Mountain, to take the free Roam Public Transit bus into town to avoid having to find parking.
The Bow Valley Parkway is a fantastic ride while temporarily closed to vehicles, but make sure you carry bear spray, have it easily accessible, and know how to use it. Bears are roaming the parkway as well so be prepared. And if you plan to ride from the Town of Banff, use the Norquay highway exit and park at the Train Station Public Parking Lot. It’s closest to the Legacy Trail and you can park there for 9 hours. In town, cycling on sidewalks is not allowed.
Report all carnivore sightings - bears, cougars, wolves and coyotes - to Banff Emergency Dispatch at 403.762.1470. More info: banff.ca/wildlife.
