Red Canyon Transit, LLC, is a relatively new Utah company made up of old timers from the Utah passenger transportation industry. It was awarded the National Park Service contract to operate the free visitor transportation service for Bryce Canyon National Park in 2016. Combined, partners Steve Lewis, Ron Romer and Brian Cambria have over 100 years of passenger transportation experience. They have brought a fleet of eight new transit buses to the shuttle, operating with the cleanest diesel engines available today. Red Canyon Transit staff – the best in the west – is made up of many veterans of the Bryce Canyon Shuttle, some with experience going back to the first year of the shuttle, 2000.
