EVZion: East Zion National Park Electric Vehicle Shuttle System Plan
EVZion demonstrates a small-scale, environmentally sound, zero-emission, electric vehicle shuttle system through a small gateway community and the east entrance of Zion National Park (ZNP). This high-tech, electric shuttle pilot and demonstration project involves national laboratory data collection, industry partner road testing in extreme climate fluctuations, and local community leadership. This nationally recognized project is intended to support the sustainability goals of ZNP along with the economic and environmental resilience objectives of rural gateway communities. EVZion is designed for universal scalability with deployment in other high-traffic, environmentally sensitive national and state parks throughout the United States. This pilot proposes positive strategies and smart mobility solutions through the design of an electrified and resilient park touring transportation system.
