We are arriving in Anchorage by train at 8 pm on a Monday in late May. Are there usually cabs or shuttles waiting there to take you to your hotel or do I have to plan ahead?
Shuttles will depend on the hotel. There should be taxis or you can call one. There is also Uber and Lyft.
Cabs run 24 hours a day in Anchorage. There will probably be a line of them waiting when the train arrives.
Note: some nearby hotels offer complimentary shuttles.
