Grand Canyon National Park Fee Increase Proposed – for everyone but the air tours

Comments due Jan. 7!

Grand Canyon National Park is proposing to increase entrance fees into the park for the first time since 1997. The fee for a seven day vehicle pass will go up from $25 to $30. An annual Grand Canyon pass will increase from $50 to $60. The current rate of $12 per individual or motorcycle would increase to $15 per individual and $25 for a motorcycle.

We’d like to see groups of cyclists or pedestrians treated favorably over cars. We also think that entrance fees for noisy air tour riders should increase, but that is not part of a proposal.  You can make your suggestions to the National Park Service by filling out a comment form at http://www.nps.gov/grca/parknews/proposed-fee-increase.htm.

The current park entrance fees have been in place since 1997.
