AGENCY:

National Park Service, Department of the Interior, golden Gate National Recreation Area.

ACTION:

Notice and request for comments.

ABSTRACT:

The National Park Service (NPS) is proposing to conduct survey interviews in year 2001 to identify the market viability and visitor trip planning interests in recreational ferry services accessing Golden Gate National Recreation Areas (GNRA) on San Francisco Bay. The results of these surveys will be used to develop alternative plans for a possible ferry service and forecast potential demand. Intercept and telephone interviews will be carried out at non-park sites (intercept interviews) and with those who possibly currently do not visit those destinations (telephone interviews).

OMB Number: To be assigned.

Expiration Date of Approval: To be assigned.

Type of Request: Request for new clearance.

Description of Need: The National Park Service needs information to develop plans for alternative modes of access to GGNRA sites, including ferry service.

Automated Data Collection: At the present time, there is no automated way to gather this information, since the information gathering process involves asking visitors and/or the general public to identify characteristics, use patterns, expectations, preferences and perceptions that are relevant to a study of ferry service.

Description of respondents: A sample of individuals who visit GGNRA sites of the National park Service and individuals who do not visit GGNRA sites.

Estimated average number of respondents: up to 1200 (completed telephone interviews); up to 1600 (completed intercept interviews).

Estimated average number of responses: Each respondent will respond only one time, so the number of responses will be the same as the number of respondents.

Estimated annual reporting burden: 600 hours.
