FY23 FLTP accomplishments report cover page_
The National Park system includes more than 85 million acres of land in 428 national park units. These units are in every state and include national parks, national parkways, national monuments, national historic sites, national military parks, national battlefields, national memorials, national recreation areas, national scenic waterways, and national seashores. To reach these sites, visitors depend on accessible and safe transportation facilities such as trails, roads, bridges, ferries, transit, and more.

Today, the National Park Service's transportation system includes:
  • 5,600 miles of paved roads
  • 7,500 miles of unpaved roads
  • 1,338 road bridges
  • 61 tunnels
  • Approximately 100 transit and ferry systems with 26 million passenger boardings
  • 1,100 miles of transportation trails
  • Approximately 200 trail bridges
A report summarizing the achievements of the National Park Service’s Federal Lands Transportation Program (FLTP) for fiscal year 2023 is now available.
