Online survey now available for alternative transportation study

By Staff | Feb 11, 2009

Lee County Transit (LeeTran), in cooperation with its partners – the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge and the City of Sanibel – was awarded a grant through the Federal Transit Administration under the Alternative Transportation in Parks and Public Lands Program (ATPPL). The program is designed to assist national parks and public lands (including wildlife refuges) in managing their visitation, while meeting the primary goal of providing sanctuary habitats for various wildlife.

The goals of the ATPPL program are to conserve natural, historical, and cultural resources, reduce congestion and pollution, improve visitor mobility and accessibility and enhance the visitor experience. As one of the most visited refuges in the system, the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge experiences high traffic volumes.

An online survey regarding transportation in the Refuge and how it relates to the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island is currently available to the public on the project Web site at www.dingdarlingtransportation.com.

We encourage everyone to take the survey.
