Strategy AC4.3: Identify tourism-focused transportation improvements. Seek funding opportunities to implement.
Currently, several private companies in the Asheville Region operate shuttles from the airport to downtown and other locations on demand. The cost to the individual customer can be fairly high (around $40). Adding carshare (such as Zipcar) or bicycle share service at locations downtown and a free shuttle circulator between key destinations could provide incentives for tourists to leave their vehicle at home.
