Grand Canyon National Park will once again offer shuttle bus service between the neighboring town of Tusayan and the park. Service will begin on May 12th and continue through September 17th, running at 15 minute intervals between 8:00 AM and 9:30 PM daily.
Each day, the first bus will leave Tusayan at 8:00 AM from the IMAX, while the first bus will leave the Grand Canyon Visitor Center at 8:30 AM. The last buses will leave both Tusayan and Grand Canyon Vistor Center at 9:30 PM.
There are four stops in Tusayan:
- IMAX Theater/R.P.’s Stage Stop
- Best Western Grand Canyon Squire Inn
- Grand Canyon Airport (Grand Canyon Airlines Terminal)
- The Grand Hotel
There is no charge for the Tusayan Shuttle, but visitors entering the park must purchase their park entrance passes in advance. Entrance passes can be purchased at the IMAX Theater as well as most hotels in Tusayan, the Airport and many of the local businesses. Those holding a valid America the Beautiful National Park and Federal Recreational Lands Pass or other valid pass will not need to purchase an additional entrance pass.
