Transportation to Mendenhall Glacier

Recommended Posts

Are there any 2020 updates to this complicated topic?

Fee changes? Uber allowed to have permits in? 

I know about the public bus (cheap), but don't want to 

spend an hour each way and another 1/2 walking the

path to get there. Seems like a waste of precious time.

Sorry to bring this topic up yet again....

When we did the Inside Passage cruise on Princess Aug. 2015, we rented a car in Juneau (reserved ahead of time). It only took us about 10 minutes to walk to the rental car place. We had the car & were at Mendenhall Glacier before any of the tours--it was great! Then we drove to the end of the highway going out of Juneau, stopping along the way at a lot of scenic spots. We stopped again at the glacier on the way back (more crowded this time), and still had time to park the car, go up the tram & back, return the car, and get back to the ship in plenty of time.
