Yellow Jersey Cycle Shop, across the street from the library, rents quality mountain bikes for economical prices.

There's a paved bike path as far south as Fortress of the Bear on Sawmill Creek Rd. The road north to the ferry terminal has wide verges and is perfectly safe for cycling.


For water-taxi service to USFS cabins or kayaking destinations, contact Esther G Sea Taxi or Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures.


  • Sitka’s public bus system, Ride Sitka, runs on three lines and serves practically everywhere of interest to visitors. The only downsides: it doesn't stop at the airport (the last stop is about 0.75 miles short) and it doesn't run on weekends.
  • The green line does a loop around town. The blue line heads south via Whale Park to the Fortress of the Bear. The red line heads north to the cruise dock and the ferry terminal. Crescent Harbor serves as the terminus for all three lines.


There are several car rental desks at the airport.


For a ride around Sitka, try Hank's Taxi or Baranof Taxi.
