Intelligent Transportation System Unveiled During Bridge Crossing Jubilee

The National Park Service and Friends of the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail will be unveiling a new vehicle during the Bridge Crossing Jubilee on Saturday, March 5, 2005.

This vehicle (pictured at left) was developed by Yellowstone National Park, and will be utilized to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Voting Rights March and tragic Bloody Sunday.

The National Park Service and the local friends group collaborated with Yellowstone National Park in the development of a compatible ITS (Intelligent Transportation System) for the 54 mile trek.

This vision of an Intelligent Transportation System for the 54 mile historic trail will be an added asset to the area. Tourists will have the opportunity to ride a shuttle between Dallas, Lowndes and Montgomery counties while watching or listening to the 1965 historical interviews.

Hundreds of Americans marched from Selma to Montgomery over a five day period in March 1965 under the watchful eye of federalized national guardsmen. This bus will provide another venue for visitors to learn about the civil rights history of Central Alabama.

"The National Park Service and the local Friends of the Trail believe this is a chance to expand tourism opportunities," stated Catherine Light, Superintendent, Selma to Montgomery, National Historic Trail.

The vehicle will be located at 2 Broad Street in Selma, Alabama during the Jubilee on Saturday, March 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
