Using Public Transportation in Moab

Travel Tips, What's New — By julietrevelyan on September 5, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Most people drive their own vehicle to Moab. It’s tucked away in the off-the-beaten-path canyons of southern Utah. Besides, as a jumping off point for Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, personal transportation is almost essential. (There is absolutely NO public transportation within either national park.) So what’s the most common way of getting around Moab? Your own feet! This cute, outdoorsy Western town has a walking downtown that’s perfect for strolling and window shopping. There’s not much need for cabs or public buses in little Moab.

That said, however, there are indeed a few options for public transportation around Moab. Reasons?

1) To get from the Moab airport to your hotel. Some of the shuttle services will even pick you up from Green River (52 miles northeast, where there’s a Greyhound bus station) or Grand Junction (113 miles, has a regional airport).

2) To get to your hotel after a night o’ libations at a rockin’ fun place like the Moab Brewery.

3) To get to the trailhead of your amazing outdoor hiking/biking/rafting/canyoneering adventure. Then to get from the trailhead back to your hotel.
