How do I use the shuttles?

The Zion Canyon Transportation  System is comprised of two routes: the Canyon Loop and  the Springdale Town Loop.

The transfer point between the two system loops is located at the Zion Canyon Giant Screen Theater complex in Springdale. After departing the Springdale shuttle at this stop, simply walk across the footbridge to the park’s pedestrian entrance. After entering the park, proceed to the adjacent Visitor Center to board a Canyon Loop shuttle.
