Local legislation has only in recent years allowed for the presence of ride sharing opportunities such as Uber and Lyft to take to the streets. Since then, they have been providing visitors and locals alike with very convenient (and very inexpensive) ways to get around town to see the sights! If you are needing the occasional ride here and there, then we recommend using the ride sharing options that are available here!
There are several taxi services available here in the Fairbanks area. If you are needing a taxi, all you need to do is either call any of the taxi services– or you can ask the front-line staff of nearly any business that you are visiting if they can call you a taxi and they would be happy to do so for you!
The Fairbanks North Star Borough is home to a fantastic and comprehensive public transportation bus system. If you are the type of person who has quite a bit of flexibility, then you may benefit from the extremely low cost fare (or free if you are over 60 years of age). The public transportation lines are organized by colors (red line, blue line, green line, yellow line, etc.). Neat trick: the Red Line and Blue Line essentially make a loop all around town, and the only difference is that they run in opposite directions. Both lines make stops at many of the local attractions such as the Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center, University of Alaska Museum of the North, Pioneer Park, Creamer’s Field, among others!
