Intelligent Transportation Systems In Our National Parks
Visitation to national park units is expected to grow over the coming years, leading to increased traffic congestion on park roads and in parking areas. Along with causing visitor frustration, traffic congestion can result in air and noise pollution, haze, and impacts to fragile natural and cultural resources. To help improve the visitor experience, NPS is beginning to use Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), which are advanced information and communications technologies that can improve transportation safety and efficiency. ITS technologies include traffic detectors, weather sensors, computer databases, and variable message signs.
