Applicability of ITS in National Parks: California Case Studies

National parks in the U.S. are facing increasing difficulty in trying to preserve unique resources while supporting increased visitation levels. The transportation infrastructure in national park units is increasingly inadequate to support vehicle movement and parking. Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) may provide a set of tools to help address transportation challenges within parks. This paper summarizes the results of a research project funded by the California Department of Transportation examining the applicability of ITS to meet transportation challenges in and around the state’s national parks. This paper summarizes the research project, the two case study projects chosen, and the early winner projects selected for deployment and evaluation. The presentation will also present the analysis of the evaluation which is not available yet at the time of writing the full paper.
