Now you can enjoy the beauty of Yellowstone in a much greener way.
Starting Thursday, visitors to Yellowstone National Park can now purchase digital annual and seven-day entrance passes online.
“We are pleased to offer a digital option to purchasing passes at entrance gates and to usher in a new era of online convenience for our visitors,” Yellowstone Park Superintendent Dan Wenk said in a statement.
The National Park Service partnered with NIC Inc. to develop and administer the website, YourPassNow, to help visitors purchase their new passes without needing to print paper tickets, in-person.
Using your personal device, like a smartphone or laptop, for example, visitors can purchase park entrance passes from the website at no additional cost. Once purchased, passes are emailed to you and can be used immediately or printed for future use.
So, if you prefer to print, you’ll still have that option.
YourPassNow has been used by several other parks and points of interest such as Acadia National Park, Colorado National Monument, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, Everglades National Park, and Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.
Entrance to Yellowstone National Park is $60 for an annual pass. If visitors wish to purchase a seven-day pass, private vehicle passes are $30, motorcycle or snowmobile passes are $25 and individual passes are $15. Anyone under the age of 16 can enter the park for free.
