Transit Plan Gets Plenty Of Reaction

Jackson, Wy – Public comments on a draft transit plan for
Grand Teton National Park generally supported trying out shuttle
buses.
Several of the nearly 27-hundred people who commented on the
plan said that mass transit could cut down on congestion, air
pollution, noise and collisions with wildlife.
Others said the same thing about plans to build new pathways.
But pathways were a more contentious issue.
While Grand Teton has proposed building 23 miles of new paths,
about twice that much pathway is being proposed by some bicyclists,
business owners, local government officials and environmentalists.
Of particular concern to some is a plan to build pathways that
would strike out away from roads rather than follow them. Some said
such paths would lead to more surprise encounters between wildlife
and people.
