(AP) — Free shuttle service between the Grand Canyon and the neighboring town of Tusayan has resumed.

More than 92,000 people boarded the shuttles last year as a way to cut down on vehicle congestion inside the national park. The more popular South Rim can see as many as 10,000 vehicles a day.

Visitors can park in any of three areas in nearby Tusayan. Those who take advantage of the service will get into the park quicker than other motorists.

The service began as a pilot project three years ago. The National Park Service says it will continue as funding allows.

The buses will run every 15 minutes from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. through Sept. 7.
