Skagway is laid out on a simple grid, with streets branching off from Broadway. The main sights can be reached on foot. For places you can't walk, try the Dyea Dave Shuttle (tel. 907/612-0290), which operates like a taxi. Skagway also has a bus, called SMART (tel. 907/983-2743), which runs a circuit around town for $2 a ride, or out of town to sites such as the Klondike Gold Dredge for $5 with an all-day pass. It leaves on the hour from City Hall and 7th Avenue and Spring Street. A bike is fun and practical transportation in Skagway. Sockeye Cycle, on 5th Avenue off Broadway (tel. 877/292-4154 or 907/983-2851; www.cyclealaska.com), rents good mountain bikes for $14 for 2 hours and leads guided day trips.
