To better serve Zion National Park visitors, a transportation shuttle system operates seasonally each year from the spring through the fall.

Spring, Summer, Fall Visitors

During the busiest months, this shuttle service enables us to protect the park for generations to come. All visitors are required to use the shuttle to travel around the park, including along the six-mile Zion Canyon Scenic drive. 

Zion National Park Lodge guests with overnight stays are allowed to drive to the Lodge using the red permit mailed to them. This permit will need to be validated by the front desk, and displayed while the vehicle is parked.

Winter Visitors

Shuttles only run during certain dates during the winter months. When shuttles are not available, visitors can drive to the various trailheads on the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Please be advised we expect the shuttle to fill daily when they operate, limiting access. Visit the Zion NPS website for more details.
