Default Whittier/Anc private shuttle option?

Has anyone used an independent shuttle operator? I was told that the only way I can get the ship's shuttle is if I purchase the hotel option.

You have three independent options.

The Alaska railroad runs a train from Whittier to Anchorage, they have opened a new station at the Anchorage Airport, so you can disembark at either the airport or downtown the cost is $52

The Magic Bus operates on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The cost is $49 plus tax. www.themagicbus.com ; 907-268-6311

Aurora Limousines also runs a shuttle which makes a couple of very nice scenic stops along the way

I was answered you off the top of my head. Now that I have my planning book in hand I can give you more specifics.

The Alaska Railroad departs Whittier at 6:45 pm and arrives in Anchorage at 9:15

Aurora Limo departs Whittier at 9:40 am and arrives in Anchorage at 11:20

One I forgot to mention is Alaska TimberwolfTours

They leave Whittier ar 1:30pm
