  • Your Pass Now Delivers Convenience and Efficiency

    By NIC Inc. |

    Imagine you are heading out for your family’s summer vacation to visit Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Your bags are packed, horseback riding boots and hiking gear ready, bicycles are good to go - you even remembered to grab the fish bait on your way out the door. You are all set - until you arrive at the park entrance and realize there is a long line to purchase a park pass. Now what? Thanks to Your Pass Now, you can breeze past the line by showing your electronic park pass. 

    Your-Pass-NowIn partnership with the National Park Service, NIC recently launched a pilot program, Your Pass Now, that makes entrance passes to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Colorado National Monument, and Acadia National Park available for purchase online, at no additional cost, from your mobile device or computer. These passes can be printed or stored on your smartphone, in Apple Wallet, or even on an Apple Watch. And better yet, Your Pass Now does not require Internet connectivity, so your pass can be validated right from your mobile device from anywhere in the park. 

    Not only does Your Pass Now offer a more advanced and efficient digital solution, the service provides a critical step in the parks collecting valuable revenue to provide visitor support and ensure national parks are protected and preserved for the future.

    So, get ready for your summer vacation, but don’t worry about packing your printed park passes. Your Pass Now provides you with more choices in how and when you purchase your passes, and provides a convenient and efficient digital alternative to the traditional paper-based pass.
