Salt River shuttles:

San Juan:  San Juan Shuttle Services

  • Valle's Trading Post: (Mexican Hat), phone # 435-683-2226, $60.00/vehicle,   $1.00/day/vehicle storage fee.  Typcially, vehicles are stored at Mexican Hat until the day you are taking off.  Drivers will shuttle vehicles to Clayhills Crossing and then they need to be driven back to Mexican Hat.   The other option is to have the vehicles dropped off at Clayhills Crossing.   This is an additional $100.00.  All vehicles will be shuttled down to Clayhills and left.  The extra $100 covers the cost of using one of their vehicles to bring all their drivers back to Mexican Hat.  They also shuttle vehicles from Sand Island to Mexican Hat.  The cost is $20.00.  Typically, people drive their cars to Mexican Hat, then a driver will shuttle them all back to Sand Island in one of your vehicles, and then return to Mexican Hat.  If you would prefer to have them drive one of their own cars to shuttle the drivers, then it is $30.00.
  • KD Shuttle:  The other outfit who does San Juan shuttles is KD Shuttle, phone # 435-672-2240.  They are based primarily out of Bluff, so they typically shuttle from Sand Island to Clayhills Crossing.  The cost is $70.00/vehicle.  Again, the same arrangement as with Valle's in that you bring their drivers back.  It is an additional $120.00 to have the vehicles dropped off at Clayhills Crossing.  They will do shuttles from Mexican Hat, but I didn't inquire about it.
