ZION NATIONAL PARK — Officials at Zion National Park have started plans to reopen shuttles into the park for next season and are hoping to avoid ticketing scalping, where people purchase and resell the tickets for higher prices.

The Spectrum reported that a temporary shuttle ticket system was introduced over the summer that required visitors to purchase a $1 ticket and reserve a ride time to help reduce overcrowding during the coronavirus pandemic.

Officials say the shuttle was sold out for days in advance throughout the summer and remained booked despite releasing some tickets the day before or day of.

Park spokesperson Amanda Rowland said that tickets were also resold, though the exact number is unknown.
