Bryce and Zion both offer shuttle options so you don't need to take a car everywhere in the park. Check out this article for more information on the shuttles, with links to the official NPS sites with more detailed information. Check it out:  http://www.ohranger.com/valley-forge/news/2011/explore-national-parks-taking-shuttle

 

The Bryce Shuttle stops major destinations, such as: Ruby's Campground, Bryce Canyon Visitor Center, Bryce Point, Inspiration Point, Sunset Point and Bryce Canyon Lodge. For more information, visit http://www.nps.gov/brca/planyourvisit/shuttle.htm
