Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

Tok is an important is where two major highways intersect:

  • Highway 1. This highway terminates at Tok. From the southwest, the highway travels from Anchorage.
  • Highway 2 (Alaska Highway). From the northwest, the highway travels from Fairbanks. From the southeast, the highway travels from Whitehorse, Yukon via the border crossing at Port Alcan. In the Yukon, the highway is numbered Highway 1.

By bus[edit]

  • Interior Alaska Bus Line, +1-800-770-6652, . Year round service on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday between Anchorage and Fairbanks, as well as points along these routes. Travel between those two larger communities involves taking the bus to Tok, then making a same day transfer to the destination. Travel time to Tok from Anchorage is 7.25 hours and from Fairbanks is 4 hours. Be sure to reserve in advance and allow some flexibility in your schedule as buses may be rescheduled based on demand.

Get around[edit]

The "downtown" portion of Tok is spread along the highway. There are local taxis but no other public transit.

See[edit]

Frankly, Tok is not in one of the more scenic areas of the state. The region is mostly flat with young forests that are still recovering from many wildfires in the region.
