In the summer of 2008, the Grand Canyon National Park (GRCA) conducted a pilot shuttle bus program that offered visitors the option of car-free travel from Tusayan, Arizona, to the Canyon View Information Plaza. The pilot program was funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) through the Alternative Transportation for Parks and Public Lands (ATPPL) Program with an award of $193,000. A key component of the pilot program was the deployment of a traveler information system to provide information needed by visitors to use the shuttle (such as shuttle location and availability, and where to buy entrance passes). The information system was deployed in the cities of Valle and Tusayan. It consisted of one Portable Dynamic Message Sign (PDMS), two Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) and two HAR static signs.
