Money and Tipping

When dining in restaurants, it is customary to leave 15-20% tip for good service since servers typically make minimum wage. Taxi drivers should be tipped the same rate.

Local Transportation

The main problem of getting to Whittier is that it is accessed by a long one way tunnel shared by vehicles and the railway. It also alternates direction during the day. Tunnel schedule and toll here http://tunnel.alaska.gov/
