Should we fly into Bozeman??

We have never been to Yellowstone National Park, but thinking of taking a trip soon. Everyone says fly into Bozeman. How far of a drive is it to the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone Park? We will not need a car once we get to hotel. Any suggestions on best "ground transportation" option for us to take from Bozeman to Old Faithful Inn?

If you want to tour the park in the summer then yes you will need a car unless you are taking tours all the time. There is transportation to some of the gateway cities. Bozeman is just one airport. There is also Billings and Jackson that are very close to YNP.

You will NOT need a car?? Are you on a tour??? It took us about 2 1/2 hours to get to OF from Bozeman last August. Not sure what transportation is available, if any from Bozeman. Just wondering why you would not need a car.

We have a trip planned in 3 weeks. We got a great deal for an SUV from Hotwire, It is around 3 hours to the Old Faitful Inn.

There is transportation but it is expensive--several hundred dollars each way. Karst Stage out of Bozeman.

You will be much better off with your own car.

Predicting travel times is difficult to impossible. You never know what the traffic is like inside the park each day, each hour, etc... Using online travel drive times do not take into account for bison on the road, bison and bear jams, photographers and visitors who stop in the road and block traffic, etc....

Could you perhaps fly in to Jackson & have friends pick you up?
