Transportation - south rim
Nava-Hopi Tours runs two buses a day from Phoenix airport to Flagstaff, and one a day from Flagstaff to the South Rim. Cost is $22 + $12.50 = $34.50. At Phoenix airport you can buy the ticket from Arizona Shuttle Company in the Meet & Greet area of terminal 2.
Phone: 1-800-892-8687 or 928-774-5003, or inquire at lodge information desks.
|Bright Angel Lodge||6:30||7:30||7:30||8:30|
|South Kaibab trailhead||7:00||8:00||8:00||9:00|
Service is also available from the Yaki Barn area, near the South Kaibab trailhead, back to the village at around noon to accommodate the mule trips that arrive back on the rim at that time.
If you plan to use the shuttle please remember to verify the actual departure times upon your arrival at the Grand Canyon. Missing the shuttle is a good way to screw up your trip from the very start.
