South Rim - Tusayan Multimodal Transportation Action Plan &
South Rim - Tusayan Multimodal Transportation Action Plan Outcomes
The entrance to the South Rim of GrandCanyon National Park is one of the busiest single entrances to a park in the world. Total visitation to the park has increased sharply by1.8 million over the last 5 years, culminating in a record 6.35 million visitors in 2018. In recognition of the challenge posed by the resulting congestion in and around Tusayan and the south entrance to the park, a collaborative group made up of Grand Canyon-South Rim Chamber of Commerce, Grand Canyon National Park, Kaibab National Forest, Town of Tusayan and Paul Revere Transportation formed in 2017. Along with community partners, they sought to better understand the current situation, assess driving factors and explore possible solutions.
Project Purpose Enhance the quality, extent, and use of multimodal transportation options between Tusayan and the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park to benefit visitors, residents, service providers, community members, and park resources.
Outcomes The South Rim – Tusayan Multimodal Transportation Action Plan contains a series of tangible actions for implementation over the next 5 years.The strategy contained in the plan includes 45 prioritized actions presented under four themes. Some represent current efforts that have proven effective and are recommended for continuation. Others have already been launched during the preparation of the plan, while a substantial number require concerted action by one or more parties. Nearly all of the recommendations sit on the foundation of existing, approved plans.
