In recent years vehicle congestion has become a problem in Acadia National Park. The Ocean Drive Corridor is one area of the park where congestion is a major problem. Our project collects data through the use of Streetlight, in-person monitoring, camera monitoring and questionnaires. We found that visitors do not stay in the Sand Beach Area very long, the majority of people do not visit Sand Beach, visitors are willing to use a reservation system and the Island Explorer is an option for transportation in the Ocean Drive Corridor. Our recommendations for Acadia are the implementation of a new pilot reservation system specifically at the Sand Beach Parking Lot and increasing advertisement of the Island Explorer.
