National Park Service and Transit

The Oak Ridge National Laboratories will assist the National Park Service in addressing transportation needs through the application of low-cost technology-based solutions, such as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications. The project will assist the National Laboratories in providing the technical assistance and support needed to explore and test the application of integrated ITS transit technologies to improve the travel needs and safety of visitors to national parks. Currently, the National Park Service is under increased pressure to reduce the impacts from travelers visiting the parks. National Parks such as Great Smokey Mountains National Park and Grand Canyon National Park will serve as real-world testing grounds for the application of ITS transit technologies, providing a higher level of integrated service to meet the transportation needs of the National Park Service. Project is funded under the National ITS Program, administered by the Department's ITS Joint Program Office.
