Federal Recreation Passes Now Available for Motorcycles, Open-top Vehicles

PORTLAND, OR - Motorcycle and open-top vehicle owners now have a secure way of displaying their federal Interagency Recreation Pass and Northwest Forest Pass.  A decal is available for affixing the pass to windshields.

These decals are available for the following passes: Interagency Annual, Interagency Senior, Interagency Access, Interagency Volunteer, Golden Age, Golden Access, and the Annual Northwest Forest Pass.

"We had a lot of requests for a pass that could be displayed without worry of theft from motorcyclists and open-top vehicle drivers," said Jocelyn
Biro, Recreation Program Manager for the Pacific Northwest Region.   "In
the summertime, many people travel via motorcycle or open-top vehicle, such
as a Jeep.    Where recreation fees are required at specific Forest Service
day-use sites in Oregon and Washington, the decal may be used as proof of payment of the fee."

In order to obtain any of the decals, a current valid pass is required, such as the Interagency Passes (Annual, Senior, Access or Volunteer) or the
annual Northwest Forest Pass.   The decal is free. Individuals should bring
a valid pass and the vehicle registration for the motorcycle or open-top vehicle with them when requesting a decal. The limit for the Northwest Forest Pass is one decal per pass and it is valid for one year. There is no limit for holders of Interagency Passes or Golden Age and Golden Access.
Interagency Senior Pass and Access Pass, Golden Age and Golden Access holders must return each year for the new free decal.  Decals may be obtained from most Forest Service offices in Oregon and Washington.

Recreation passes provide a variety of benefits to the holder.   The
Interagency Passes allow for entrance to National Parks and National
Wildlife Refuges.   At recreation sites managed by the Forest Service,
these passes cover recreation use fees at primarily day-use areas.
Discounts vary from agency to agency and by the type of pass you hold.
Recreation fees help cover the operations and maintenance of recreation facilities and trails.
