NATIONAL PARK SERVICE MOBILITY CHALLENGE PROGRAM
The NPMMC invites mobility companies and public agencies to propose solutions to one or multiple of the following Areas of Innovations the State identified as priorities within Michigan’s National Parks:
1. Small-Scale Electric Shuttles and Automated Driving Systems (ADS): Multi-passenger transit services, such as small-scale electric shuttles (either human-operated or ADS-operated). These technologies provide visitors with a greater variety of transportation options, ease navigation in and around NPS sites, replace private motor vehicle trips, alleviate parking and roadway congestion in busy areas, improve access for persons with disabilities, and reduce the environmental impact of visitors’ travel.
2. Multimodal Electric Charging Hubs: Integrated multimodal electric charging hubs in and around NPS gateway communities. With the advancement of electric mobility devices, the State and NPS will create more capacity for the public and fleet operators to charge their electric vehicles while traveling and recreating in Michigan’s great outdoors.
3. Micromobility: Concepts that expand shared micromobility services that provide visitors with dynamic, enjoyable alternatives to motor vehicle trips. These technologies can facilitate both short, “last mile” trips from the campsite to the store or enable visitors without their own bikes to experience Michigan’s trails on an all-day adventure.
Successful submissions will be evaluated for implementation, including through follow-up conversations with Michigan and NPS. Grant funding is available to support the most promising innovations, affording companies the opportunity to pilot their products and services in Michigan’s world-renowned National Parks for the public’s use, benefit, and enjoyment. Piloted projects are anticipated to relieve parking lot and roadway congestion, increase the availability of charging stations for electric mobility devices, or offer access to convenient alternatives to private motor vehicle travel. NPS and the State will evaluate these pilot projects to help inform possible long-term deployments of similar technologies in recreational settings throughout the State, as well as at National Parks in other states.
