Get­ting around

Timeless Travels Magazine - - UNITED STATES OF AMERICA -

Dur­ing the sum­mer sea­son (23 May - 23 Septem­ber) free shut­tle buses op­er­ate be­tween the canyon and the town and through­out the south rim of Grand Canyon. The red line buses take one out on Her­mit Road stop­ping along the way at many points where rid­ers may get off and view the canyon. The buses stop ev­ery 15 min­utes from just be­fore sun­rise un­til just be­fore sun­set. The blue line buses take vis­i­tors from the vis­i­tor cen­tre to the camp­ground, the gen­eral store (with a post of­fice and restau­rant nearby) and the var­i­ous lodges such as Maswik. One does not need a ticket and there is no fee to ride th­ese shut­tles. There is also an or­ange line which brings guests from the vis­i­tor’s cen­tre to the canyon. The shut­tle buses are much eas­ier to use than a car and Her­mit’s Road is ac­tu­ally closed to all traf­fic ex­cept the shut­tle buses.
