Shuttle Information

Zion National Park Timed Shuttle Ticket System

Beginning tomorrow, September 28, there will be two major changes:

1) The afternoon walk-up tickets will now be available from 3 pm – 5 pm, changed from 3 pm – 6 pm. These first-come, first-serve tickets are held for visitors who have been otherwise unable to secure shuttle tickets in advance. The number of available tickets will be somewhat less than the current amount.

2) The last shuttle returning from the Temple of Sinawava to the Zion Canyon Visitor Center will leave at 7:15 pm, an hour earlier than has been the case for the past few months. It is a good idea to plan to be out before the last shuttle each day, as seating on shuttles is greatly reduced and standing is not permitted.
