Travel to/from TFS
Toolik Field Station is located at mile 284.5 of the Dalton Highway, 370 miles north of Fairbanks. Travel to the station by road takes roughly 8-12 hours and requires travel on a largely unpaved industrial artery that serves operations at Prudhoe Bay. The majority of our researchers and staff travel to TFS via one of the TFS operated NSF Science Support Trucks that travel to and from the station twice weekly. There are several alternative methods of travel one may also select:
Option 1: Toolik-provided or -operated Science Truck from Fairbanks (requires advance reservation)
Option 2: “Toolik Taxi” shuttle van from Prudhoe Bay (requires advance reservation)
Option 3: Externally operated Dalton Highway Express service from Fairbanks
Option 4: CPS, UAF or commercial rental truck (driven by user)
