Transportation & Getting Here
Kimberley is a good place to be – and getting here is easy, whether you prefer to fly, drive, or even bike.
Kimberley is located on Highway 95A. It is slightly removed from Highway 3, one of the main east-west routes running west to Vancouver and east through the Crowsnest Pass into Alberta. Highway 95A runs north as the combined Highway 93/95 to meet the Trans-Canada Highway at Golden. By road, Kimberley is only 1 hour from the US border, about 3.5 hours from Spokane WA (332 km/206 miles) and approximately 4 hours from Calgary AB (392 km/244 miles).
The Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC), located just outside of Kimberley, offers daily flights.
The Peak to Platzl Downtown Shuttle is a free winter transportation service between the Kimberley Alpine Resort base area, on-mountain accommodations and the downtown shops, pubs and restaurants. Check back in December for the 2021/2022 Ski Shuttle Schedule.
BC Transit offers local door-to-door bus service daily, and service to Cranbrook Tuesday through Friday.
Taxi service is also available – a great option for those who only need a ride once in a while. Local taxi service L & K Taxi is there to help. L & K Taxi offers taxi and minibus service year-round for individuals, businesses, parties, corporate events, outings, and tours.
Kimberley - Cranbrook commuters who enjoy staying active can cycle along the spectacular, paved NorthStar Rails to Trails pathway between the two cities. Commuting doesn’t get much better than that!
Simply Kimberley provides commercial transportation services from the Canadian Rockies International Airport to Kimberley resorts, accommodation and activities; as well as between lodging and area golf courses.
