We only have one car, and wish to do a non-loop backcountry hike starting in Two Medicine.
Does anyone know if there is a shuttle operating to/from Two Medicine?
Is hitching feasible in Glacier?
Any input much appreciated!

4You are asking us to predict the rate of traffic on a road at an unknown time to predict likelihood of you getting a ride? Let's see, where did I put my crystal ball?
Ah here is your answer:

5If you're on US-2, you'll have no problem hitching. There's tons of traffic on US-2. Highway 49 has a lot of traffic too. Hitching in Montana is quite safe, especially for a guy. I've done it a bunch, though not around Glacier. As long as you don't look like a dirtbag and have a decent pack, you'll get a ride.

7Thank you vinnn, for your helpful answer.
montereyjack, I am only asking if this road gets noticeable traffic. Is it one car an hour? 5 a day? Or every few minutes? I hitched over 2,000 miles around Central Europe last summer, and am familiar with the pros and cons of desolate roads.
ianw6705, my google yields many results, but none are affirmative for a shuttle to Two Medicine. If you have found a link indicating otherwise, you would be greatly helping a needy hiker!
Thanks for the effort everyone! Lukas

Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
