Shuttle Service Description: The shuttle is FREE and operates only during summer months. There is limited space available and no reservations are allowed. It is a first-come, first-serve basis. Visitors are picked up DOWNTOWN AT THE 4TH AVENUE AND F STREET LOCATION and taken to the Alaska Zoo. The shuttle drops passengers off on the return trip at the same downtown location. The shuttle makes round trips every hour starting at 9:40am downtown and ending at 9pm with the final pick-up at the zoo. The shuttle runs daily during summer months only.
