Why the New Shuttle to the Adirondack High Peaks?

If you hike or even live near the Adirondacks in the summer, you know that they are a huge tourist destination. With the spectacular summer weather, the NY DEC wants to make sure the influx of hikers can get to their destinations safely. They thought it necessary to add more shuttle services and a new route.
