Glacier National Park is beginning a multi-year planning effort to address transportation and visitor use issues within the Going-to-the-Sun Road corridor. During the peak visitor season, the corridor experiences crowding and congestion along the road and at pullouts and parking areas. Many of the more popular hiking trails have seen increased congestion and resource impacts on vegetation and wildlife, and the quality of the visitor experience is being negatively affected. Additionally, the shuttle system launched in 2007 is not financially sustainable. The corridor management plan will develop a range of alternatives to address management of visitor use and experience, congestion, protection of natural and cultural resources within the corridor, and long-term financial sustainability of the park's shuttle system.
