US Forest Service

US Forest Service Travel Management Survey Have Your Voice Heard

Attention: Off-Road Riding AMA and ATVA Members

Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) has teamed up with the AMA/ATVA and several other national motorized recreation groups to develop a survey designed to gain a better understanding of how the US Forest Service's travel management rule is being implemented on the National Forest lands you access with your off-highway motorcycle or ATV.

If you're an off-road rider please click here Travel Management Survey  to take the survey. Even if you're not familiar with the US Forest Service's travel management rule your input will still be useful.

Background

The US 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 Service Chief directed Forests to complete work on travel management by December 2009. Virtually every Forest in the nation is currently implementing the rule.

Rider participation in the travel management process is critical. The AMA encourages all OHV enthusiasts to be involved in the travel management process.

The survey was developed and is being distributed through a partnership of ARRA, American Council of Snowmobile Associations, AMA/ATVA, BlueRibbon Coalition, Motorcycle Industry Council, National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council, Off-Road Business Association, Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, Tread Lightly!, and the United Four Wheel Drive Associations.
