Forest Service Travel Management Survey

The BlueRibbon Coalition has teamed up with several national OHV organizations to develop a survey designed to help get a better understanding of how the Travel Management process is unfolding on the Forests you access with your OHV. Even if you are unaware of this process, please proceed with the survey, as that information is useful as well. To take the survey please click here: Travel Management Survey.

ARRA, American Council of Snowmobile Associations, American Motorcyclist Association, BlueRibbon Coalition, Motorcycle Industry Council, National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council, Off-Road Business Association, Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, Tread Lightly!, and United Four Wheel Drive Associations worked together to develop this survey and your participation will help these organizations get a clearer picture of the process on your Forest(s) and will ultimately help the groups focus advocacy campaigns.

Background:

The U.S. Forest Service finalized its Travel Management Rule in November 2005. The rule requires each Forest to designate roads, trails and areas open to OHV use and to publish a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) indicating those decisions. After the MVUM is published, any use of OHVs on routes or areas not identified on the map will be illegal. While there was no deadline for Forests to publish an MVUM in the rule, the Forest Chief directed Forests to complete work on travel management by December 2009. Virtually every Forest in the nation is currently implementing the rule, and the survey will help us get a better understanding of how you believe the process is unfolding on the Forests you access with your OHV.

Your participation in the travel management process is critical. We encourage you to attend meetings, write comments and to stay involved. Completing this survey will help us have a better understanding of the process on your Forest, and we are here to help, but your involvement will be crucial to ensuring continued responsible access for OHVs on your National Forest.
