Lethbridge is a mere two hours from the Rocky Mountains, Calgary, the US border and the British Columbia border — and four hours to the Saskatchewan border — making it an easy place to get to... find adventure!
The Calgary International Airport (YYC), 250 km north of Lethbridge, is the closest international airport. To get from YYC to Lethbridge, you can take a 45 minute flight to the Lethbridge Airport (YQL), take the bus, or drive.
Red Arrow bus service departs from YYC and stops at uLethbridge.
Greyhound bus service does not depart from YYC, so you'd have to rely on a taxi or shuttle service from YYC to the Greyhound depot in Calgary. Once in Lethbridge, the bus stops at both the University and the downtown depot.
