Williams is about a one hour drive from GCNP. IMO that's the best way to get there since it means you'll have your own vehicle to use inside the park if you want to. The GCRR train runs from Williams too, but that adds time and a big price tag, and limits your options for returning as well.

The only free shuttles are inside Grand Canyon National Park and the new shuttle from GCNP to Tusayan, small town just south of the park.

Transportation from Williams, will not be free, and really, best to have a car.

It's easy and safe to tour the GCNP on your own. If you'll have a car, I would do it that way.

www.openroadtours.com takes you to the GC s rim from Williams. But I agree get a car. And as mentioned its not free. There are free shuttles at the rim that go from one view point to another. What are you planning on doing and when are you coming willl make a huge difference as well.
