Covid-19 Update for the 2020 Season

This is a very challenging time for us all.  As we balance government regulations and the social responsibilities required to keep our guests, employees, community members, and fellow world citizens safe in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, our current circumstances call for patience, fortitude, unity, and the ability to adapt to difficult decisions based on an ever-evolving set of variables and parameters. 

After the careful consideration of the many factors involving the implementation of current health mandates, we have concluded that we will not be able to provide a scheduled shuttle service for the 2020 season. Due to uncertainty of the current health situation, the hiring of seasonal employees has been put on hold and our shuttle fleet has been reduced to maintain our critical infrastructure.

The communities of Kennecott and McCarthy are very important to us and this decision is not made lightly.  We understand that this will likely cause difficulties for regional and local businesses as well as the local community at large. Wrangell Mountain Transport is working on what possible services we may be able to provide. These could include charter services and other community transportation options depending on what current health and safety mandates are in place at that time and the availability of staffing and vehicles. Any operations in the future will strictly adhere to current health and safety guidelines as well as putting a special emphasis on caution due to the difficulty of accessing health facilities and the size and remote location of the local community.

Please check back periodically for current updates.

Current status as of April 30th, 2020:

  1. No scheduled service will be provided for the 2020 season.
  2. Wrangell Mountain Transport office in McCarthy will be closed until further notice.
  3. Wrangell Mountain Transport will provide updates through email and on our website as the situation evolves. 
  4. For questions and concerns, please email, info@wrangellmountaintransport.com

Thank you very much for your understanding.  We all hope that you, your families, your businesses, and your communities stay diligent, safe, and healthy.

Sincerely,

Wrangell Mountain Transport
