OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The National Park Service has partnered with digital government services provider NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV) to offer an alternative online option for seniors to purchase their America the Beautiful, Senior Pass. The pass provides lifetime admission for U.S. citizens or permanent residents 62 years of age and older to more than 2,000 recreation sites managed by six federal agencies.
Developed in conjunction with the National Park Service, YourPassNow provides a digital solution allowing visitors to purchase their park entrance pass online. YourPassNow will temporarily extend the same convenience of online purchasing to seniors when purchasing the Senior Pass.
“We are excited to be working with the National Park Service to extend an easy alternative to seniors who would like to purchase their Senior Pass online,” said Sandi Miller, General Manager, NIC Federal. “YourPassNow provides digital access to our public lands, delivering on NIC’s commitment to make government interactions more efficient and convenient.”
Unlike the other pass options offered by YourPassNow, the Senior Pass will be mailed to individuals. Due to the high demand for the Senior Pass, passes will be received approximately 12 weeks after they are purchased. While recipients wait for the pass to arrive in the mail, they may use the emailed order confirmation as proof of pass purchase. At staffed locations, individuals will also be required to present a government-issued photo ID.
YourPassNow was developed by NIC Inc. in conjunction with the National Park Service. YourPassNow allows visitors to some national parks and U.S. Forest Service sites the opportunity to purchase entrance passes electronically. YourPassNow streamlines a paper-based purchase process that was previously only available at physical park locations or approved resellers. YourPassNow provides a new level of convenience and flexibility to park visitors. For more information, please visit www.yourpassnow.com.
