Free Summer Shuttle in Fernie Starts June 28th

Fernie Shuttle

FERNIE, BC Tourism Fernie is funding a second summer season of the Ferniestoke Summer Shuttle service, including day and evening, from June 28th to September 1st with support from the City of Fernie’s Resort Municipality Initiative (RMI) tourism program.

This FREE shuttle service is available to both visitors and residents Wednesdays thru Sundays connecting town and accommodations with multiple locations and attractions including Mt Fernie Provincial Park, the Visitor Centre and Fairy Creek Falls Trailhead, Fernie Alpine Resort and more.

Riders are encouraged to utilize the shuttle to transport between route stops but also like a Hop-On Hop-Off experience to explore Fernie and area with friendly and knowledgeable drivers from Tunnel49. The Hop-On Hop-Off concept allows passengers to board the bus at any designated stop, and have the freedom to hop off at various points of interest along the route including shops, cafes and the Museum in Historic Downtown, a scenic chair ride at Fernie Alpine Resort, a family friendly hike to Fairy Creek Falls or in Mt Fernie Provincial Park, and more. Once you're done exploring, simply hop back on the bus at the scheduled stops and times to continue your journey or end the day.

NEW this summer will be the addition of an evening service encouraging exploration of the town, attractions, and dining locations between 5pm – 11pm. This new evening route and schedule also provides an option for riders to enjoy local restaurants and pubs with a safe ride back.

The service operates on a first-come, first-served basis with limited seating. Its goal is to ease parking congestion, decrease vehicle emissions by providing an alternative to driving, promote job creation and local businesses, and enhance the visitor experience. Due to limited seating groups over six are encouraged to pre-book a taxi or private charter from Tunnel49 as seats on the free shuttle can’t be guaranteed.
