 Shuttle Bus Schedule, South Rim

 

 
The South Rim of the Grand Canyon runs three shuttle buses that provide service from Yaki Point to Hermits Rest.  Private vehicles are not permitted on the West Rim Drive.  There are three separate loops the buses run and there are connections between each of the loops at a number of points.  All buses stop at the West Rim Interchange located by the Bright Angel Trailhead.  The buses are clean, comfortable, and the fastest way to get around Grand Canyon National Park.  Their large windows all provide excellent views when going out to Hermits Rest on the West Rim Drive.
