Don't know about now. A couple years ago one could take a "Jammer" bus
from East Glacier Lodge, to Prince Edward Lodge near Waterton, then was
$45 one way. Also there is no one way drop off from tourist boats from
Waterton to the border, so its about a 12-15 mole hike from the Prince
lodge to the border. If Jammer bus still runs, get to East Glacier a day
ahead, stay at one of the 2 hostels, ( walking distance to East lodge)
catch bus next morn, as it leaves early.Might call those hostels, should
have info on the Jammer bus.
