Yellowstone National Park partnered with Beep to launch the first automated shuttles in a national park setting. The goal is to test the feasibility and sustainability of autonomous shuttles to guide long-term management decisions regarding transportation in national parks.

Due to its remoteness and popularity, National Park Service selected Yellowstone to explore opportunities to advance its goals related to emerging mobility and better plan for the future of transportation. Beep was selected by NPS after meeting all the requirements through a competitive bid process.

The pilot was used to help inform considerations for emerging technologies such as the use of autonomous shuttles throughout the park system. Learnings garnered during the program will be used by the NPS to examine how alternative transit systems can be used in Yellowstone to improve visitor access and experience.

“As visitation continues increasing in Yellowstone, we are looking at a range of visitor management actions that focus on protecting resources, improving the visitor experience, and reducing congestion, noise and pollution. Shuttles will unquestionably play a key role in helping achieve these goals in many of the busiest areas of the park.”
