There are other forms of transport through the canyon besides shuttle bus, train or car. You might want to try a more leisurely form of transportation.
Some might want to see the Grand Canyon from the back of a mule. There are one to two day trips into the canyon which leave in the morning. If they are completely booked, they'll put your name on a wait list.

If horses are your passion, Apache Stables offers trail or twilight wagon rides as the weather permits. They are located at the north end of Tusayan. Call (928-638-2891) for more information.
This is a guided mule tour following Bright Angel Trail down to the Colorado River at valley bottom. Much of the trail is along a side canyon so the views are more restricted but the scenery is of course still breathtaking.
You can take a mule ride to the bottom of the canyon should you be brave enough. They say they haven't lost one mule or passenber yet.
Mule is the most comfortable transport inside the Grand Canyon! Of this way you can relax and contemplate the beauty of the canyon
