Boston-based Paul Revere Transportation (PRT) was awarded a five-year contract to operate and manage bus shuttle service at the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona through Nov. 30, 2019 by the U.S. National Park Service.

PRT has operated the Grand Canyon Visitor Transportation System since January 2000. The service provides free shuttle transportation to visitors at one of the world’s most recognizable destinations. The Grand Canyon National Park Transportation System connects visitors with viewpoints, campgrounds, lodges, restaurants, the Yavapai Geology Museum and Grand Canyon Visitor Center, along more than 25 miles of the canyon’s most scenic vistas and attractions.

PRT provided visitors with more than 6.1 million passenger trips in 2013. PRT has worked closely with the Grand Canyon National Park to accommodate a significant surge in ridership during recent years. The shuttle service has grown by more 1.5 million visitor trips between 2008 and 2013. The shuttle service features compressed natural gas vehicles and includes accessibility for wheelchairs and bicycles.

In addition to ensuring consistent, reliable service, PRT’s Grand Canyon management team has been recognized for an outstanding safety record for passengers and employees. The service has been rated among the safest workplaces in Northern Arizona since 2010.
