This project investigated different methods for implementing and assessing a parking reservation system in Glacier National Park. Due to wildfires, our team was relocated to Acadia National Park for the first four weeks of the project term to work remotely. Our team conducted visitor surveys on reservation feature preferences in Acadia National Park at Cadillac Mountain and Jordan Pond to use as reference data upon arrival in Glacier National Park. Our team designed a multi-step phase in plan for a parking reservation system for both national parks using asset mapping and cost-benefit analyses. Finally, our team developed an app for offline GPS location tracking for future use in identifying and managing traffic throughout the park in a timely and effective manner.
