Thanks to a connection by Grand County Travel Council Executive Director Elaine Gisler, meeting Jerry Dolejs, founder and owner of US Bus Utah, at the Governor’s Conference in Salt Lake City in early August, 2017, a hop-on, hop-off shuttle bus will be coming to Moab to serve both locals and tourists in October.

Moab City and Grand County Departments are working closely with US Bus Utah to establish necessary steps to make this a reality for our Moab community. In an attempt to help meet your needs for reliable transportation, this letter to the editor will help to assess what Moab needs.

Will you please reflect on your transportation needs and costs then, take a few minutes to provide your valuable feedback for gathering a comprehensive needs assessment?

Every person’s input will be considered. Think about safety first, cost savings on gas, roads, vehicles, ease of travel, solving scheduling issues, environmental considerations, parking and future growth in Moab.

Please include details about what hours would you or your guests or family use a shuttle. Where would you want bus stops? How often would you like bus transportation available? What day and hours of the day and evening would you like to see it run? Do you have any other comments, considerations or contributions?

I sincerely appreciate your feedback. Please send e-mail to A new Facebook page has been registered for all Moab citizens to voice their opinions and needs at

Thanks for taking time to share your needs, input and concerns.
