How Much Does Jackson Hole Transportation Cost?

Are you thinking about visiting Jackson Hole this year and trying to come up with your trip’s budget? After lodging, transportation can be one of the costliest aspects of a vacation so it’s important to examine before finalizing your reservations. Jackson Hole transportation costs can include airfare, fuel, bus fares, party bus tabs, rental cars, Uber charges, and taxi fares. All of these modes of transportation vary in cost, luxury and convenience, this all-comprehensive guide will help line up your expectations with your budget. Let’s begin with the fun ones!

Flying into Jackson Hole Airport will likely be your biggest transportation cost if you decide to do so. Since it is a small airport with a limited number of daily flights, flight tickets are much more expensive than most parts of the country. You can expect roundtrip flights to range from $400 to well over $1,000. There is also an FBO (private airport) located at JAC if you prefer to go that route. However with the rising demand in private aviation you can expect your bill to range anywhere from $6,000 to $60,000.

Jackson Party Bus

The most fun way to spend your transportation budget is on a party bus and there are tons of reasons to do so in Jackson, whether it’s for a birthday party, bar crawl, wedding or night out on the town! 

Prices vary depending on passenger capacity and the size of the vehicle. They start at around $165 an hour for 16 passenger vehicles on weeknights and can go up to $300 per hour for 60 person vehicles on weekends during high season. However, because of Double Black’s discounted prices on weekdays and half-day, full-day specials, our prices can be as low as $150 an hour for a 24 passenger vehicle! To bring it down even lower, ask about our multi-day discounts that are designed for groups needing transportation all weekend long.

Rental Cars

If you’re coming to Jackson Hole this year you should definitely consider renting a car for your main method of transportation. The Valley is very spread out, so if you’re staying in Teton Village you may be able to walk to the mountain but you’re going to need a set of wheels to get to all of the restaurants and shopping around the Town Square. And if you’re staying around town, you’ll really love having a car for going skiing/hiking. You can take the START bus to the mountain if you’re staying in town but it’s not always the coziest ride on -10 degree mornings. Prices vary from $100 - $500 a day.


Whether you get a rental car in Jackson or drive your own car to Jackson, fuel will likely end up being one of your primary transportation costs during your visit. While most of Wyoming has relatively low fuel costs compared to other parts of the country, Jackson Hole is an overpriced ski destination and our gas prices reflect as much. For most of 2022, unleaded has bounced between $4 -$5 a gallon.

The START bus is a great affordable option to get to the ski mountain if you are staying in town. One-way tickets are only $3. They also offer START ON DEMAND which is essentially a free Uber that will take you anywhere in the town limits. All you have to do is download the app!



Jackson Hole has a ton of taxi companies, unfortunately they all seem to run on the same schedule so you’ll likely either have your choice of 5 or none. Easy places to find them are the airport, the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar before 11 pm and the Town Square. If you are a night owl and like to stay until last call, you may have a difficult time finding one at the Cowboy Bar. They are also quite expensive and charge for each additional person over 2, so be wary! Expect prices to vary from $20 - $100 a ride.



Ubers are often cheaper than taxis and overall the better option in Jackson. They don’t have any hidden fees and you can track them on their way to pick you up. Instead of taxis saying they’re on their way, only to be late by an hour or more. Unfortunately, Ubers are no guarantee either and sometimes there are simply none available on the road. Depending on the distance, prices can vary from $10 - $70.

Transportation is not cheap anywhere and especially not in premier travel destinations such as Jackson Hole. That being said, if you are willing to sacrifice comfort and convenience, you can save a lot of money by riding the START bus and START ON DEMAND. However, we recommend renting a car for most visitors and booking a Jackson party bus if your group is 8 or more people. Get a quote today!
