The Biennial George Wright Society Conference on Parks, Protected Areas, and Cultural Sites

RSG Director, Steve Lawson, and Senior Analyst Brett Kiser will present their paper, “Sustainable Transportation for National Parks: Evaluating the Long-Term Sustainability of Shuttle Service in Mount Rainier National Park.” This paper presents the results of a study in Mount Rainier National Park to assess the long-term sustainability of shuttle service options, not only in terms of operational requirements and financial feasibility, but in terms of crowding-related capacities for visitor destinations serviced by the shuttle system. Limitations and benefits of the approach are considered for planning sustainable shuttle systems in national parks.
