Zion National Park Shuttle Service

From April through October, the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive (a park road off Rt. 9) is accessible by shuttle bus only. Rt. 9, which traverses the park from east to west, is open year-round to private vehicles.

In 1997 visitation was 2.4 million and increasing. The shuttle system was established to eliminate traffic and parking problems, protect vegetation, and restore tranquility to Zion Canyon.

The Springdale Shuttle stops at six locations in Springdale. The Zion Canyon Shuttle loop stops at eight locations in the park. The transfer between loops is made at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center. You may get on and off as often as you like. Riding the shuttle is free.

The shuttle system will begin operations April 1 and runs through October 29.

How to use the shuttle

Avoid parking hassles. Parking is limited inside Zion. One may park in the town of Springdale and ride the town shuttle to the park. Look for the ”Shuttle Parking” signs throughout town. If you are staying at a lodge or motel, simply leave your car there and ride the town shuttle to the park. The parking lot at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center commonly fills by mid morning. Tune your radio to 1610 AM for additional information.

Take Your Time – Buses run frequently throughout the day, as often as every seven minutes. You do not need to rush to catch one. Take your time to plan your visit. Use the exhibits outdoors and the information inside at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center to make the most of your time. Ranger presentations at the Zion Human History Museum are a great way to learn more about the park before you ride the shuttle up canyon. The bookstore has maps and publications that can augment your visit.

What To Bring

For a day-trip on the shuttle, you should take:

  • Water/Snacks
  • Walking Shoes/Map
  • Sunscreen/Hat/Sunglasses
  • Camera/Binoculars
  • Dress for the weather and bring everything you need for a day in the park.

Some rules to be aware of

  • No eating or smoking on the bus
  • Beverages other than water are not allowed
  • Pets are not allowed on the shuttle buses!

Free buses run from early morning to late evening as often as every seven minutes. Buses are fully accessible.

Times and intervals change with the seasons. Current schedules are posted at each shuttle stop, the Visitor Centers, and in your park guide.
