Our regular Transportation service runs three days a week, Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, starting in mid-June through the end of September. The bus leaves the Munising Falls Interpretive Center at 10:00 a.m. departing for Grand Marias and leaves Grand Marais at 11:30 a.m. You can catch the bus on either end depending on how you have planned your hike. Pick ups and drop offs can be made along the route on H-58. To keep costs down and because of time constraints we do not deviate down the feeder roads on this run. We always suggest you hike to your vehicle so that you do not have to worry about getting off the trail to catch the bus.

Please remember that all transportation is run on an advanced pre-paid reservation basis only. On line payments can be made through PayPal, although you do not have to have a PayPal account to pay this way. Once you submit your reservation form you will be taken to the PayPal site for secure payment. If you prefer to pay by check, be sure to allow enough time to mail a check or money order ahead. To make a reservation, please call: (906) 387-4845 or Email the office or click on the reservation link below.

Office staff responds to online reservations Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM – 4:00 PM. If you need to make a last minute reservation on Saturday, our office is open from 9:00 AM to Noon. We are closed on Sundays, although you can still submit reservations over the weekend and after hours, staff may not respond until Monday.
