Technically, you can't drive to Juneau - but you can put your car on a ferry. The Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) is our floating roadway that serves as Southeast Alaska's main marine transportation system. You can enter or depart the region via Bellingham, Washington; Prince Rupert, British Columbia; Haines, Alaska; or Skagway, Alaska.

Getting Around Town
Juneau's main highway extends about 45 miles along the mountainous coastline. Rental cars, taxis, and limo service are available, easy Juneau transportation options to Mendenhall Glacier and other local attractions. The public bus system is an additional mode of transportation for locals and visitors.
By the way, Juneau's cabs all charge the same rates due to city ordinances, so no worries there.
