New Price for NPS Senior Pass
Beginning in 2017, the cost for a NPS Senior Pass will increase from $10 to $80. The pass is still valid for the lifetime of the passholder. A new annual Senior Pass is also available for $20, and the cost of it can be applied to the purchase price of a lifetime pass at a later date. The new prices will be implemented by the end of 2017, but the NPS doesn’t have a specific timeline.
2016 Shuttle Road Construction Update
Due to road construction in the park, the park shuttles are running on a modified schedule during the 2016 season. The shuttle stops include the shuttle staging area, Ruby’s Inn and Ruby’s Campground in Bryce Canyon City; and the Visitor Center, Sunset Campground, Inspiration Point and Sunset Point in the park. Bryce Point is closed to visitors, and there is no vehicle access to Paria Point. And although the small parking lot behind the main Bryce Lodge building offers limited parking because of construction, the accessible parking spaces seem to have good availability.
