Zion Canyon Visitor-Transportation Center was dedicated on May 26, 2000. This new facility is the springboard for the Visitor-Transportation System and access to the upper 6 miles of Zion Canyon. The shuttle buses operate mid-March through October. The Visitor Center is located at an elevation of 3,923 feet above sea level and commands spectacular views of the Watchman, Bridge Mountain, and West Temple, which tower 2,500 to 3,800 feet above the building. The Visitor-Transportation Center features sustainable design concepts which will decrease by 70% the long-term cost to heat, cool, light and maintain the facility.
