*Update – the shuttle system is running on the regular Summer Schedule
On Easter weekend, the transportation department, which manages the shuttle system for Springdale and Zion National Park, decided to test whether they can run the Springdale town shuttles on their normal route (from the Visitor Center to the Majestic View Lodge).
The conclusion was that, until the construction on State Route 9 through town is completed, the shuttle route will remain “fluid” on a daily basis. Each morning, the transportation department coordinates with the construction crew in charge of the highway project to determine how the day’s construction events will impact the shuttle route.
Because of this, the transportation department is making daily announcements on each of their shuttle runs through town to inform passengers of the plan. This will occasionally mean that the shuttle driver will announce that anyone staying at a hotel south of the Hampton Inn will want to plan to be back to their hotel prior to 6pm (as the majority of the roadwork happening this week is going on between the hours of 7pm and 7am).
In any event, the road construction schedule is on-time and will be completed by April 15th. The shuttle route should return to normal before this time, most likely by April 8th, but is guaranteed to be on the regular schedule by April 16th.
