Blue Ridge Parkway is a completely unique place to manage a Fee Program. When a Park is nearly 500 miles long, it can be difficult to keep everything running smoothly. However, the wonderful people at the Parkway manage it every day. Despite having several locations that are considered very remote, we are working hard with them to give them every Advantage the other Parks we work with enjoy.
The greatest challenge a Park like this faces is communications. The distance between each location and headquarters is a lot more than normal so it is difficult to create solid and consistent connections. After some trial and error, with the help of Debbie and Monte, all of the locations are up and running.
We truly enjoy working with Blue Ridge Parkway and helping them with the unique challenges the area presents. The staff has been very supportive in our efforts to improve the fee collection systems we have set up there. We look forward to our continued work with the Parkway!
