USNPS ordered to seek public comment on controversial e-bike decision

After already ordering units of the National Park System to be more accommodating to eBike users, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt now wants the National Park Service to seek public opinion on eBikes, a move that could be considered to be backwards.

Typically when there's a management issue that could impact park resources, or other park visitors, or which is considered highly controversial, parks go through a planning process that includes seeking public comment before implementing a management decision. In the case with eBikes, Bernhardt in August directed park superintendents to provide more access for eBikes and seek public reaction later.
