Grand Canyon, AZ- The Grand Canyon National Park Airport in Tusayan will be added as a free park and ride location for park visitors from Aug. 30 through Sept. 2, 2019, to alleviate some of the holiday traffic.

Visitors using the airport parking can purchase a park pass at the Westwind counter in the main terminal or online at

No eating, open drink containers or pets are allowed on the shuttle buses. Service dogs, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act, are permitted aboard.

 All of the park's buses are wheelchair accessible. The park does offer a Scenic Drive Accessibility Permit, which allows entry for visitors with mobility issues to some areas closed to public traffic. The permit is available at entrance gates and National Park Service visitor centers.
