It is also important to note that the Hakuba Shuttle Bus is not the only service operating in the valley or between the resorts. Other local bus lines run between many locations, servicing different routes, and many resorts and hotels operate their own shuttle services throughout winter. The following information is based on previous seasons and, to the best of our understanding, is correct. Please note however that schedules can vary from what is listed below.
