Tusayan bus route running- The Tusayan bus route is once again running between the Main Visitor Center and Tusayan. Buses run every 20 minutes.  First bus leaves IMAX at 8 am and last bus at IMAX is 9:45 pm.  First bus leaves Visitor Center at 8:25 and last bus leaves Visitor Center at 9:30 pm.


Road Detours  
Here is the official link with maps for the road detour Please note there will be a lot of traffic on Center Road.  Road speeds are being reduced to 15 mph - please follow those limits and keep an eye out for our local kids that cross that road regularly for school and to get to the Recreation Center.  Stop signs have also been added to help reduce speeds.  Many visitors have been lost in residential areas as well - if you see a confused driver please give them some Grand Service and help them out by redirecting them.

 We have added a lot to our Google Calendar so please take a look here.
