ROAM - Banff Transit

Roam, rebranded from Banff Transit in 2008, serves Banff and Canmore in central Alberta. The system operates three routes in Banff, as well as a regional commuter service to Canmore. Each bus in the fleet is wrapped in a unique scheme featuring a selection of local wildlife. These wraps also act as identification in place of fleet numbers.
