Most Viewed Transportation in Arizona

  • The Phoenix metropolis

    Fly, Phoenix has an international airport; or drive.
    Unfortunately Phoenix has a really poor transit system, and although they are in the process of upgrading, the valley is just too large to try and get around without a car. Besides, some of the best things to do here is outside city limits!!

    If you live in one of the surrounding states, you can drive. Otherwise fly into Arizona.
    You can't get by with the bus. NO WAY JOSE! You have to rent a car, or own one. There's no question. It's not like San Francisco or New York, with good buses or subways. rent a car.

    Airlines: commuter lines fly daily from Los Angeles and Las Vegas to Grand Canyon Airport in Tusayan,4 miles south of the visitors center.

    Bus: Greyhound Bus Lines provide services from Flagstaff; 800-231-2222

    Navi-Hopi Tours provides public transportationfrom Flagstaff and Williams to the park. 520-774-5003

    South Rim Travel offers services from Flagstaff to the South Rim

    Train: Amtrac serves Flagstaff with connecting bus service with Navi-Hopi Tours

    Historic Grand Canyon Railway runs daily (except Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) between Williams and theGrand Canyon Villiage.
    Getting around the Canyon: The park operates a free shuttle bus service from March 11 to October 17. The shuttle travels it's route about every 15 minutes and provides transportation between the visitor center, hotels, restaurants, and nearby campgrounds. If you feel more adventurous, you can ride a burrow down into the canyon. Needless to say I didn't. *BAWK*

    I've always flown into Arizona and rented a car.
    Having a car means you get to set your own schedule and go where you want to go (rather than being limited to where the tour buses go). However, it also means you'll have to spend some time planning your routes and overnight stays. It's worth it, because there are wonderful scenic highways to travel while you're on your way to tourist destinations. Route 77 isn't the most direct route from Phooenix to Tuscon, but it's beautiful, and it takes you right past Biosphere 2.

    Major airports are in Phoneix and Flagstaff. Car or bus are the only means of transportation gettting to the park.
    All the usual modes of transport are available. Grand Canyon Natl. Park has a shuttle bus in season that transfers visitors to the distant point in the park. Hiking prospects are available too of course.

    Our good old rented RV that brought us through 7 States without trouble.
    In 1998 we rented a "Cruise America" RV, the next year a "Moturis" RV.
