Bozeman Area Recreational Alternative Transportation Study Phase III, Alternative Transportation Analysis
Started: December, 2014 Ended: January, 2016 Project ID #4W5265 Status: Completed
Results & Findings
As part of the Phase III feasibility study, seven feasible projects were developed through a collaborative process involving more than 30 public agencies, non-profits, and other entities. Summaries of the projects are presented in the final report (see link below). In the next phase, these projects will be considered for funding and implementation.
The objective of this project is to assess, plan and design alternative transportation options for safely accessing recreational sites surrounding Bozeman, Montana, including Bridger Canyon, Hyalite Canyon, and many other popular destinations.
In 2009 and 2010, the Gallatin National Forest applied for and received two grants from the Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program to fund two multi-modal transportation studies related to the recreational areas surrounding Bozeman. Given the interrelatedness of the two studies, the objectives and intents of these two funded studies are now being pursued as a single project known as the Bozeman Area Alternative Transportation Study. This study has four phases: Data Collection, Scoping & Reprioritization, Feasibility Study, and Funding Applications. The Phase III Feasibility Study will assess, plan and design alternative transportation options for safely accessing recreational sites surrounding Bozeman including Bridger Canyon, Hyalite Canyon, and many other popular destinations. This Study will culminate with a report that will identify recommended alternatives for improving access to recreational sites surrounding Bozeman. Such alternatives will be evaluated based on criteria, such as visitor mobility, visitor experience, environmental impact, operational efficiency, financial sustainability, and technical feasibility. WTI's responsibilities for this project include document review, stakeholder outreach, site investigation, public meetings, and development of the feasibility study work plan.
