    Nobody wants to ride a shuttle that stops running at 7pm. Hiking with a deadline is worse than hiking in the rain. This isn’t a theme park with a closing time. Start charging $5-$10 and make it 24 hrs if you want people to ride it. Oh and it also would help if you stopped at AMR. If the way it ran this year is how it will run in the future, then just give us back the parking spaces you took away for the shuttle stops at the trailheads.
