GRAND CANYON, Ariz. (AP) - A Boston transportation company has secured a new contract to run shuttle buses at the Grand Canyon.

The national park announced Tuesday that Paul Revere Transportation will maintain a fleet of 30 buses through November 2019. The shuttles are free to visitors at the South Rim.

Grand Canyon Superintendent Dave Uberuaga (yoo-bur-AH’-gah) says the shuttles help reduce vehicle emissions and traffic in the park. Some 2 million people boarded the shuttles last year.

The shuttles run four routes, two of which are offered year-round and two that are seasonal. One of the seasonal routes takes visitors between the South Rim and a tiny town just outside the national park.

The service is funded with entrance fees.

Paul Revere has operated shuttles at the Grand Canyon since 2000.
