Be careful with this. The MGT Blue Bus shuttle takes you right to the main parking lot and does run every 30 mins between 9am and 6pm for a round trip cost of $16.

The public bus pulls up about a mile short of the main parking lot and there is an uphill hike from there to the parking lot..

So if we are in port 2-10pm what are our options after 6pm regarding transportation from the Glacier to port/town?

You would need to call a cab.......or you may want to rent a car for the day and drive to other locations, as well.......

Most of the rental agencies are out at the airport. I don't know of any that will drive down to pick someone up at the port. That being said, the daily rate in summer could run anywhere from $50-$100 depending on the auto.

That's a bargain compared to the cost of ship excursions, Nomeman......Rent a Wreck picks up at the dock CT08specB....reserve ahead of time......

I took the MGT bus tour to Mendenhall when I was in Alaska and I was able to negotiate with the guy I offered him $40 cash for the tour of the city and Glacier. It was a great tour and only $8 more than just the trip to the GLacier but again I wish we got more than 45 min at the glacier with the tour.

When you get off the boat you CAN negotiate with the vendors again I paid $40 for the city tour and trip to Mendenhall while in Juneau.
