Glacier National Park hopes to cut down on the wait times at park entrance gates with its new digital entrance passes available for purchase online.
The National Park Service partnered with NIC Inc. to develop and administer YourPassNow.
YourPassNow provides an alternative to the traditional paper-based, in-person purchase method. Using a personal device, visitors can purchase park entrance passes from www.yourpassnow.com at no additional cost. Once purchased, passes are emailed and can be used immediately, stored on a personal device, or printed for future use.
The pass will be accepted at all park entrance stations. Connectivity is limited around and within the park, particularly at the Polebridge, Two Medicine and Many Glacier entrances. Prior to arrival, visitors should ensure that the pass is printed out or properly loaded onto a mobile device.
Glacier joins many other public lands currently providing electronic passes and permits through YourPassNow including: Acadia, Everglades, Grand Canyon, Theodore Roosevelt, Sequoia and Kings Canyon, Yellowstone, and Yosemite National Parks; Castillo de San Marcos and Colorado National Monuments; Whiskeytown National Recreation Area; Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area; Wayne National Forest; the Bureau of Land Management’s Lake Havasu Field Office; and the State of Arkansas’ historic Eureka Springs.
