Bryce Canyon, Utah – Red Canyon Transit announced today it will be transitioning to its autumn schedule on the Bryce Canyon Shuttle effective Monday, September 25th. On that day, the free shuttle bus service into and within Bryce Canyon National Park will adjust to the following schedule:
8:00 AM Bus service begins from outside the park at the Bryce Canyon Shuttle Parking Station, running approximately every fifteen minutes.
5:30 PM The last departure from the Shuttle Station heading into the park.
6:15 PM The last departure from the Park Visitor Center heading out of the park.
The bus service is free with a valid park entrance permit or pass.
The Rainbow Point Tour, a free tour to the southern end of the park two times a day, will continue to operate so long as demand and weather allow. (Reservations are required. Call 435-834-5290 seven days in advance or less.)
The LAST DAY of service for the Bryce Canyon Shuttle in 2017 will be Sunday, October 29th.
2017 has been a record year for bus service at Bryce Canyon National Park, following a series of record years. There were 616,457 “passenger trips” on the main shuttle route in 2016. As of September 9th this year, 633,912. “With 50 more days to go, we’re on track to end up very close to 650,000 riders this year,” said Brian Cambria, general manager. “Add in another 9,600 on the Rainbow Point Tour, and we’re almost 660,000,” continued Cambria.
The Bryce Canyon Shuttle is participating in a test run of an all-electric bus from Proterra, to see how well it serves the needs of the park’s visitor transportation system. “We’re excited to be a part of this,” said Cambria. “Zion is also operating a Proterra bus. The drivers and passengers love it!”
Cambria invites everyone to come to Bryce and try out the electric bus for themselves.
