Reviewed December 1, 2012

The Zion Shuttle service is such a useful service, saves you from walking to all the trails, and the drivers are really lovely and very informative.

When the shuttle runs it is very convenient allowing you to hop on and off throughout the upper end of the park. Usually does not run in November but they had shuttles running along with the private vehicles. However due to less traffic in Nov. it was not a problem.

“Required Transportation, But It's Effecient”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The shuttle is fine, but the required way to get up and down the canyon. There is a narration that is helpful at first, but after you've heard it 15 times, you want to throw your shoe at it. The drivers are friendly, but bored and must be really sick of driving us goofballs up and down the canyon, and answering the same dumb questions over and over.

The shuttle is modern, clean and runs often, but can get very crowded, so pay attention to your times. there are 9 shuttle stops.

“We Learned More”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This was our first visit to Zion since they instituted the manatory summer shuttle policy. We had been to Zion many times in the 90's. We learned more from the taped narration on the shuttle than we had from all of our previous visits and since one of us wasn't having to drive, we saw more and it was gorgeous during October with all of the fall colors. Our driver on the way in had a personality that did nothing to distract us. LOL The shuttle was clean and included in the price of admission to the park. We did take one of the last shuttles back out of the canyon and my little flashlight came in handy finding our way from where we were dropped off by the shuttle to where we parked our car. We parked at the main visitor center inside the park.

“The ONLY way to get around the park”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The shuttle is the only way in the summer to get around the park. We found that we never had to wait too long for the shuttle so no complaints.

The shuttle from the visitor center includes a recorded narration about the park.

This is a good introduction and frankly better than the Ranger led Shuttle program.
