How to get a Zion National Park Shuttle Ticket

Zion Shuttles Re-Open

On July 1st, amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, the shuttle system in Zion National Park re-opened to allow visitors to safely return and visit the park, while limiting the number of vehicles allowed in the main canyon. In order to be compliant with health officials, the shuttles have had seats removed and there is a ticketing system in place that limits the number of visitors on each shuttle at a time.

The ticket system is intended to be temporary until December 2020, and things will be re-evaluated at that point. You can get your tickets at

Shuttle passes are limited daily, so make sure you plan ahead if you are planning to visit the park. Half of each day’s allotment can be booked in advance on the website, and the other half will be available at the park on a first come, first served basis.

Where does the Shuttle Stop?

There are two shuttle lines running at this time. One is in the town of Springdale, and the other is in the park.

The shuttle is not stopping at every stop inside the park, so we want you to know before you go! The stops the shuttle will make are at: Zion Canyon Visitor Center, Court of the Patriarchs, Zion Lodge, The Grotto, Big Bend and Temple of Sinawava.

More information about what to expect with the new shuttle system can be found here.

    I’m trying to reserve shuttle tickets for several days at 5 pm for the next day. I could not because the system tells me :”very heavy traffic” and by the time I could get through, all tickets are gone. What should I do in order to reserve tickets for next day? Also, how easy to get on a shuttle from Spingdale to Zion? Can I walk?

HikeStGeorge is a project that began as a seedling for Tim LeBaron in the early part of 2008, but really didn’t begin to blossom until the latter part of 2011. The original idea behind the site was to bring to light all of the harder to find, or “less known” hidden gems of the area. It was more of a pet project than anything. As excitement about the site began to spread, there was more of a push to develop information about all hikes in the Southern Utah Region.
