Getting from the Airport
Most of the hotels in town use the same shuttle service departing outside the terminal. The Chateau Nova Yellowknife hotel offers a separate shuttle service (look for a dark red bus). A 15-minute taxi ride from the airport to downtown Yellowknife costs about $15 to $20.
Yellowknife Transit has three bus routes that serve Old Airport Road, downtown, the Range Lake community and Old Town. Buses operate from 6:55 a.m. to 7:25 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Note that all transit service shuts down on Sundays and on holidays. One ticket costs $3.
City Cab operates 24 hours a day. A taxi from downtown to Old Town costs about $11 and is best hailed by downloading the OneLocal app.
