The Grand Canyon
Getting around the South Rim of the Grand Canyon can be easy! Hop Aboard the Free Shuttle Buses
For more than thirty years the National Park Service has provided a free shuttle bus system on the South Rim. The uses run on liquefied or compressed natural gas, a clean-burning fuel. All shuttles feature improved accessibility and can accommodate most wheelchairs. Bicycle racks allow visitors to combine a shuttle ride with bicycling. Riding the shuttles makes your stay more enjoyable, while reducing pollution and lessening traffic congestion. It is easy to take advantage of this free service. Just wait at one of the numerous shuttle bus stops and hop on the next bus. Shuttles run from before sunrise to after sunset, come by frequently, and do not require any ticket or toll. Riders can get on or off at any stop. Ride to a stop, enjoy the view, shop at a gift store, or walk along the rim, and board a later shuttle. Four shuttle bus routes serve many areas of the South Rim—two operate year-round and two seasonally. When you arrive at the park, look in The Guide for current operating schedules and a map of routes and stops.
