shuttle bus

Trying to book all our hotels for our trip in early October. we plan to be in Zion for 2 nights from 05 October....Hampton Inn and Suites says on their web site that the shuttle bus stops at their property during the summer season.

Could someone clarify do shuttles buses run in October ? If they don't, can we drive our own car into the national park ?

Thanks !

The only section of Zion that you can not access via car is the Zion main canyon/scenic drive. You are allowed to drive on SR 9 and in the Kolob sections year round.

You will have to transfer from the town shuttle at the town courtyard/park visitor center and enter the park via a pedestrian access. Maps and schedules on the NPS site will detail your options.

To be clear, there are two shuttle routes, the Springdale Shuttle and the Zion Canyon Shuttle, as they are referred to in the link provided above. The Springdale shuttle route ends at the Zion NP Visitor Center, where you pick up the Zion Canyon shuttle to enter the heart of the park. Your hotel would be on the Springdale Shuttle route. So, to access Zion Canyon you can either take the Springdale shuttle and change shuttles at the visitor center, or you could drive to the visitor center and park to pick up the Zion Canyon shuttle....though finding a space could be difficult, as I have found through first hand experience.
