There’s nothing better than planning ahead so you can make the most of your Bryce Canyon Country vacation and enjoy the experiences in the area to the fullest once you arrive.
One of the most important parts of vacation planning is transportation. When visiting Bryce Canyon National Park, there is a voluntary shuttle service through the park you can take advantage of.
The shuttle will more easily help you navigate through the park without the stress of driving through the congested park areas.
The shuttle stops at multiple places throughout the park. With free service, you can get on and off at any of the shuttle stops an unlimited number of times.

Bryce Canyon National Park Visitor Center
Where do I park to use the Bryce Canyon shuttle?
The best place to park is the Shuttle Parking and Boarding area across the street from Ruby’s Inn.
How long does it take to drive through Bryce Canyon National Park?
Visitors can drive their own vehicles to various parking areas and scenic overlooks throughout the park, but the full Bryce Canyon Shuttle route takes about 50 minutes to complete.
The Bryce Canyon Shuttle
Bryce Canyon’s shuttle service is not mandatory. However, it is encouraged to use the shuttle because of the congestion that occurs within the park, especially during the summer season. Bryce Canyon National Park saw over 2.6 million visitors in 2018 and the shuttle not only provides less stress and confusion for you but relieves natural resource protection concerns within the area. In other words, to keep the park beautiful for visitors in many years to come, we ask you to consider the shuttle for your transportation needs.
