Visitors to Zion National Park will have to park their vehicles and ride the shuttle system for stops along the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive starting Sunday. The free shuttle system has nine stops in the national park and nine stops outside the park in Springdale.
The shuttle was designed to relieve traffic congestion along the scenic drive during the peak visitor season. The shuttle service will continue through Oct. 28. Private vehicles will be allowed to use the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive after that date.
Only confirmed overnight guests of the Zion Lodge are allowed to drive in Zion Canyon during the shuttle season, but they are required to drive to and park only at the lodge. A lodge permit must be obtained before taking a car on the Scenic Drive.
