US National Parks to test green park transportation

U.S. National Parks are preparing to test environmentally-friendly park transportation.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg signed a joint initiative on Wednesday to test green travel technology in national parks with the aim of better conserving the land and improving tourists’ experiences.

“As we celebrate our public lands and the vast infrastructure that sustains them, we also recommit our future endeavors to the goals of job creation, sustainability and innovation,” Haaland said in a press release. “Through these new initiatives, our teams will become global leaders at the intersection of transportation innovations and access to public spaces.”
