Red Canyon Transit has announced that it will resume scheduled bus service into and throughout Bryce Canyon National Park starting April 5th. Visitors can ride the Bryce Canyon Shuttle for free with a park pass or entrance permit.
In the early season shuttles will operate every 15 minutes starting at 8:00 AM at the shuttle station in Bryce Canyon City. The last bus going into the park will depart the station at 5:30 PM each day and the last bus leaving the park will depart at 6:15 PM. Beginning the same day, The Rainbow Point Tour will also be operating, so long as demand and weather allow. The Rainbow Point Tour, a tour to the southern end of the park happens twice a day and is a FREE tour. (Reservations are required. Call 435-834- 5290 seven days in advance or less.)
Early season bus services will continue through May 10th. Services in the peak season will be more frequent and run longer hours, beginning on May 10th. The Bryce Canyon Shuttle service will continue until October 20th.
Along with most monuments and national parks in the Western United States, Bryce Canyon National Park has seen amazing growth in visitation in the past few years. The free shuttle service, provided by the park, accommodates visitors looking to experience the park without the hassle of traffic or limited parking.
Brian Cambria, of Red Canyon Transit, said "Sometimes visitors spend more time hunting for parking than they do at the overlooks," he continues, "On some days, parking can fill up well before noon. We encourage everyone to park at the shuttle station and ride the free bus. Our professional, friendly, experienced drivers help visitors feel welcome and have more time to do the things they come for." With that in mind, the free shuttle service provided to park visitors is a great option to consider when planning your trip.
