Proposed Fee Increase for Winter Shuttle Bus

The National Park Service is seeking public input from August 27 - October 31, 2013, about proposed increases to the shuttle bus fee from $5.00 to $7.00 for a roundtrip from Drakes Beach to the Lighthouse, Chimney Rock then returning to Drakes Beach. Children under 16 ride free and Senior and Access passholder discounts apply. This is the first proposed fee increase for the shuttle bus system since 2007. All public comments must be received by October 31, 2013. The proposed fees would come into effect in December, 2014.

The shuttle transportation system was identified in the Headlands Management Plan as an important tool to protect the fragile headlands but also allow access for visitors. Limited parking is available at prime viewing areas such as the Historic Point Reyes Lighthouse and Chimney Rock headlands. Bus service eases congestion in these areas. Bus service runs only on weekends and holidays, weather permitting, from the last weekend in December and into early April each year.

NOTE: Bulk comments in any format (hard copy or electronic) submitted on behalf of others will not be accepted. Before including a personal address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in written comments, anyone providing written comment should be aware their entire comment - including their personal identifying information - may be made publicly available at any time. While anyone wishing to comment may ask the National Park Service in their comment to withhold their personal identifying information from public review, the National Park Service cannot guarantee it will be able to do so.
