Zion National Park is heading into its late fall season. Striking fall colors and beautiful weather make it a great time to visit the park. It is also the time of year that the park shuttle service makes changes to its schedule.
Starting Sunday, September 25, 2016 the mandatory park shuttles will cut back their schedule times. All shuttle bus operations will end for the season on the evening of Saturday, November 26, 2016.
With the new fall schedule, the shuttles will start running from the Zion Canyon Visitor Center at 7:00 a.m. The last bus will leave the Temple of Sinawava at 7:30 p.m. In the Springdale portion of the system, the first shuttle will leave from the Majestic View Lodge at 8:10 a.m. and the last shuttle will leave from the Zion Canyon Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Shuttle service frequency should be less than 10 minutes. Round trips from the Zion Canyon Visitor Center to the Temple of Sinawava will take about 80 minutes. There is no charge for riding the shuttle buses. There are eight stops along the route and visitors may get on and off as many times as they want. Buses are fully accessible and pets are not allowed.
