Alternative Transportation

Alternative transportation is all modes of travel other than the private motor vehicle.

Alternative transportation relieves traffic congestion and eases parking shortages for areas at or nearing capacity. Alternative transportation can also contribute improving air quality, soundscapes and reduce wildlife/auto collisions. The National Park Service (NPS) aims to be a leader in using alternative transportation to reduce fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition to alternative transportaiton, the NPS is exploring how technology can enhance all forms of transportation in parks. Over the past decade, the NPS has increasingly explored the use of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) to address the access, congestion, and environmental problems which risk tarnishing the visitor experience and damaging environmental resources
