    Leaving KHMR 2/17 to fly out of Calgary-2/18 and need a ride since my group is staying longer. Any advice appreciated.

    If you can get to lake louise it is easy.

    There used to be a ski bus from Banff daily but Im not sure if Brewster operates that anymore.

    You can check/post on Facebook in Golden ride shares or Golden free classifieds to see if you can hitch a ride.

    I believe that is Family Day so there will be lots of traffic heading back East.

    Wife comments: " Why don't you see if it's cheaper for you to come back later I mean what's the difference of a few more days"

    The FB group had a comment that Rider Express runs nightly. $90.00


    Based on this information and my wife's comments, looks like departure will be based on snowfall.

    Thanks again.

    Greyhound bus service no longer exists in Western Canada:

    Busbud will get you some options, though....

    That I don't think gets you to airport just Calgary.

    Offer $60 on FB golden rideshares and you'll get a ride right to airport I would think.

    i was thinking that was the surest thing, and most likely to not get killed way.

    follow up question...Weed? Friend said theres a store in the airport? What's the best way to go about this? Any advantage to one place over another?
