Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017|4:05 p.m.

CHEYENNE, Wyo.– Sometime within the next 4 to 6 years, Yellowstone National forest is anticipated to reach its capability for being able to manage all the cars that travelers own through the park to see sights like Old Faithful, wild wolves and grizzly bears and magnificent surroundings.

Potential solutions consist of instituting a booking system or guest shuttle bus to control the variety of visitors during peak times for the busiest destinations in the park, however no choices will be made for a minimum of a few years, inning accordance with the National Park Service.

“Historic and current trends demonstrate that visitation will increase over the long-term, for that reason, it is vital for us to plan now,” Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk said in a statement. “Good visitor usage management will allow the park to protect resources, motivate gain access to, and enhance experiences.”

The agency on Thursday launched a pair of research studies looking at traffic and parking in the nation’s first national forest and visitor demographics and expectations.

Based upon conservative price quotes of visitor development to the park, the traffic study stated the nation’s very first national park must expect to surpass its general automobile capacity by 2021-2023.

“The more popular locations of the park are already over capacity under current conditions throughout peak season,” the research study kept in mind.

Two-thirds of the more than 1,250 visitors surveyed in August 2016 said that finding available parking is an issue and over half think there are a lot of people in the park.

The report advised additional traffic studies within the park and the Greater Yellowstone area to help park authorities develop options that could include developing a strategy that “assesses and specifies visitor capacities for key locations in the park.”

One tip the report made was that park service authorities may think about managing the number of visitors to the busy geyser basin attractions during peak time through “booking systems.”

Using shuttle bus, which have been adopted by some other national forests, is another possible service.

The park service pledged to collect more info through 2019 that “will guide the park in evaluating trade-offs in visitor experience and developing the most appropriate techniques to deal with summertime season visitor use difficulties.” It assured to pay attention to all concerns to help shape any actions.

Yellowstone spokeswoman Morgan Warthin stated Thursday that no choices loom which the park considers the matter to be in a “pre-planning phase.”

More than 4.25 million people visited Yellowstone in 2016.

According to the survey of park visitors, 83 percent of Yellowstone’s visitors come from the United States and 17 percent originated from abroad with people from Europe and China the leading two respectively among global tourists.
