Dateline: Page, AZ, February 6, 2019
Whilst the City of Page, Arizona is undergoing a construction project to improve the parking experience for visitors to Horseshoe Bend, it has selected National Park Express, a regional tour and transportation company offering packaged shuttle services from Las Vegas to regional National Parks, to provide a shuttle service to and from downtown Page to Horseshoe Bend. Page is approximately 2.5 miles from Horseshoe Bend.
This service starts immediately and will be provided through the duration of the construction, currently projected through April, 2019. The fee for the shuttle is $5.00 per person, roundtrip.
Safety has been a key concern for the City of Page, which has been trying to curtail unsafe parking along the highway near the Horseshoe Bend. The shuttle helps with safety issues due to unsafe parking as well as alleviate congestion concerns. The new shuttle offers frequent daily service offering visitors a simple and affordable way to reach this spectacular Natural Wonder.
David Huang, president of National Park Express said, “By providing the City of Page a safe, reliable solution to help solve their current parking challenge, we will enhance the visitor experience and allow visitors to continue to visit the attraction even during construction. We hope to continue to offer visitors more options in the future by offering transportation between local hotels, Horseshoe Bend and nearby Antelope Canyon. More transportation and better parking solutions will improve the overall visitor experience and be more environmentally friendly. It can also provide new options for those wishing to travel to the destination who don’t plan to drive themselves.”
“Thank you for working with our shuttle service, CHD, while we are under construction. We are working hard to make Horseshoe Bend a first-class experience that is memorable and safe, for all our guests, while visiting Page Arizona and all our world-class attractions we have to offer.” Mayor Tappan
Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River. It is located five miles (8.0 km) downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about 4 miles (6.5 km) southwest of Page, AZ. The popular overlook is 1,000-foot (300 m) above the Colorado River. The sheer cliffs present a panoramic view which has become wildly popular on social media.
National Park Express also offers shuttles to Grand Canyon National Park, South Rim, Grand Canyon West, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park and Boulder City. Visitors can book one-way shuttles between these locations, as well as the surrounding communities such as Williams, Flagstaff, Sedona, Page, Kanab, Springdale, and St. George. This unique network affords the travelers with options of multi-day trips to visit these beautiful areas at their own pace. This is an excellent offering for international travelers, from all regions, who may prefer not to drive themselves within the U.S.
Visitors demand greater freedom and flexibility in when to go, and what they want to see and do. International guests are often searching for more options instead of being assigned to a fixed tour. They are also able to book activities, tours and accommodations with National Park Express in these destinations, allowing full service travel booking options.
