Zion Shuttle: What you need to know about Zion National Park Shuttles in 2022

Post Summary: Zion Shuttle

Zion Canyon is a spectacular narrow river gorge in southern Utah. This canyon is the magnificent centerpiece of Zion National Park. This narrow canyon is accessed via the Zion Scenic Drive. It is both a blessing and a curse that this narrow canyon doesn’t have space to put in a large amount of public parking. To help alleviate congestion in Zion Canyon, access to the Zion Canyon is limited to the Zion Shuttle for most of the year.

This free shuttle system gives significantly more people the opportunity to spend time in the main canyon of Zion National Park. It can be a little bit confusing figuring out the Zion Canyon shuttles, especially with the changes to the current system.

Please note: Masks are STILL REQUIRED when ridging all Zion Shuttles both public and private. If you don’t want to wear a mask that is your choice but don’t expect to ride the shuttles.
