Zion Shuttles Resume Service on Sunday, April 1

Ah, the Zion shuttle. It’s there when we need it, it goes away when we don’t. Some things in life are just right. This time of year is always a good showcase for why the Zion Shuttle System exists. With warmer weather and lots of families traveling over Spring Break season, the parking lots that sit largely empty all winter are filling up quickly and the drive up and down Zion Canyon is becoming more congested.

Zion Canyon is peaceful again, with nobody fighting for parking spaces and lots of smiling pedalers on the roads. Enjoy!

Zion Canyon Shuttle Resumes Operation April 1st

Choo! Choo! The Zion Canyon Shuttle does not make that noise, but it’s fun to pretend. The shuttle system is back in action this weekend, just in time for April Fool’s Day. Think of all the fun jokes you can play on someone involving the shuttle! Best not to play any jokes on the shuttle drivers, though… Not only are those cats nice and helpful, they put up with enough crazy stuff every day without you pulling your¬†shenanigans on them. The Zion Shuttle system has a Park Loop and a Springdale Loop, which operate concurrently, but separately. The Springdale Loop cycles through Springdale from end to end, helping folks reach various destinations in town, including the Park entry gate. From there, visitors can enter the Park and hop the Park Loop, which delivers riders to various destinations in Zion Canyon. If you’ve never ridden on the Shuttle, you’ve surely missed some good “wild” turkey sightings, good conversations with foreign strangers, and pondering about what exactly they do to folks who DO stick their hands out the windows. Read more about the Zion shuttle system, or check out the Springdale shuttle stop map, below, to plan your shuttle trip. Adventure awaits.
