Feds test free Grand Canyon shuttle

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. ” Visitors to the Grand Canyon National Park will be able to begin testing a new free shuttle service on June 2.

The shuttle will take visitors from the nearby community of Tusayan (TU’-say-ohn) to the South Rim. It will run every 20 minutes from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m.

The National Park Service said in a statement Monday that several businesses in Tusayan have offered to provide parking for shuttle riders.

Visitors using the service will still need to pay park entry fees, however.

The shuttle service will be available through Sept. 1.

Depending on the shuttle’s success, the park service says it may also offer the shuttle program during the summer of 2009.
