Abstract:

This synthesis report will be of interest to local, regional, state, and federal officials, as well as to other transportation professionals that work with them in dealing with tourism and recreation travel. This report provides an overview of current practice at transportation agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, state tourism and parks departments, federal land management agencies, and regional planning agencies. Overall, findings reveal that many state departments of transportation (DOTs) are now actively involved in tourism-related planning issues–either proactively or in building solutions to infrastructure, access, or environmental issues that impinge on the success of tourism in the region. This synthesis report combines information culled from survey responses from multiple sources with a literature review drawn primarily from Transportation Research Board publications, conference proceedings, academic publications, and state DOT reports. Case study information showing New Jersey and Wisconsin support for tourism offers additional insight.
