Transportation

For a small community in Alaska, Seward is easily accessible.

By Road

Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, is 129 miles away – a 2.5 hour drive on the Seward Highway, a National All-American Road and Alaska Scenic Byway. Don’t feel like driving there yourself? Motor coach, bus, and taxi companies offer passenger and cargo service between the two communities.

By Air

Seward has a small, state-maintained airport. Airport activity is limited to charter flights, as there is no scheduled air service. Ted Stevens International Airport is located in Anchorage, offering direct service to key U.S. cities as well as international destinations.

By Barge

Cargo vessels dock directly in Seward, delivering personal goods (household goods, bulk purchases, vehicles) from the lower 48.

By Rail

The Alaska Railroad offers daily passenger service from May through September. Because of the distance, the train arrives once daily (11:15AM) and departs for Anchorage each evening (5:30 PM).
