On the west-side of the park, shuttle services begin at the Apgar Transit Center. Service to all west-side shuttle stop locations begins at 9:00 a.m. with shuttles departing every 15-30 minutes until 7:00 p.m. Prior to 9:00 a.m., there is no shuttle service to Apgar Village, Apgar Campground, or Lake McDonald Lodge. Between 7:40 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., west-side shuttles will only service Sprague Creek, Avalanche Creek, The Loop, and Logan Pass shuttle stops. An express trip from the Apgar Transit Center to Logan Pass departs daily at 7:30 a.m., without intermediate stops. The St. Mary Visitor Center is the hub for shuttle services on the east-side of the park. Shuttles begin service at 7:30 a.m. and depart every 40 to 60 minutes. The last shuttles of the day leave Logan Pass for the Apgar Transit Center and St. Mary Visitor Center at 7:00 p.m.

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

Sprague Creek has the distinction of having some of the nicest campsites in Glacier Park and some of the worst.
The best are a handful of sites on a small ridge overlooking Lake McDonald.
The worst are literaly right up against The Going To Sun Road.

Avalanche is the first expansion point of the GTSR in it's annual movement toward Logan Pass. During the winter the road is gated at Lake McDonald Lodge in the spring by second week of May the road generally opens to Avalanche were of late the gate remains until Logan Pass opens. During 2013 this point will be the main west side bottleneck in the construction on The-Going-To-The-Sun-Road. Two of the easier trails in Glacier Park start at this location. Trail of the Cedars and Avalanche Lake Trail. Avalanche Campground and Picnic area are also open during the short summer season.
