Where to Pick Up the Shuttle Buses in Denali

I have read dozens and dozens of posts and website material about the Eielson Visitor Center shuttle bus. Posters write great messages and articles about what they saw on the bus while going to the Eielson Visitor Center. I can even go to their website and buy tickets. But, I cannot find one piece of information that tells me where the bus runs originate and where you can catch this shuttle in Denali. Can somebody please share that information? Thanks.

We did not take this shuttle bus but there is a transportation center in the park not far from the train station. I suspect this is where you would get on this and other shuttles that are run by the park.

We got on the park shuttle bus at the Denali N.P. visitor center both times we did it.

I couldn't access the map from their website because of the shut down but I was able to find a map doing a google search. There is a label by the visitor center that says "Park here for shuttle bus".

You actually pick up your tickets and board the shuttle at the Wilderness Access Center (WAC). The Visitor Center is nearby.

We reserved our seats for 2 days as soon as we knew our dates. We purchased tickets to Wonder Lake for both days but only went to Wonder Lake on the beautiful sunny day that we had when we were there. The other day was cloudy so we hiked and only went as far as Eielson Visitor Center that day.

It's sometimes difficult to extend your ticket from Eielson to get to Wonder Lake on a clear day if you have not reserved ahead of time.

We found this to be confusing as well, but Linda is correct. You get buses to the interior of the park at the WAC. Hotel shuttles should make a stop there on their way to the Visitor Center. At the Visitor Center, besides hotel shuttles, shuttles come and go to the sled dog demos.
