What would be the current recommendation for transport from ANC to Talkeetna with a grocery stop?

In the past we've gone with Gary @ Go Purple. Adjusting for the fact that things just flow a little differently in the North Country it worked out well enough.

Anything new happening up there? Commercial, informal, whatever.

My buddy Joe helps run talkeetnataxi.com , a service that will shuttle individuals and groups from Anchorage to Talkeetna. Other options include taking the train, or coordinating with a guide service. I don't believe Uber has set up shop in Anchorage yet, although I've heard that they plan to very soon.

I used Talkeetna Tax when I was there in 08. Perfectly reasonable.

Thanks for the tips!

We'll check out TT as well.

I am looking for a ride or people(s) to share a ride with from Anchorage to Talkeetna on the afternoon of May 22.

Let me know if interested or if you know of someone who might be able to help or is traveling on those dates!

Cheers,

Aaron

Albert at Talkeetna Taxi has been great to work with.
