In the past five weekends, 1,930 people have ridden a new shuttle around Franconia Notch designed to ease some of the parking woes caused by an influx of tourists and hikers.

The shuttle service runs Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. between the parking area known as Peabody Big Lot at Cannon Mountain, Exit 34-C off Interstate 93, and two very popular trailheads, the Lafayette Place Campground and the Falling Waters trailhead.

The shuttle was launched along with barriers being put up to stop people from parking along the highway near popular trailheads.

The changes follow increasing safety concerns from hundreds of vehicles parking on shoulders of the two-lane I-93 during weekends and holidays.

The shuttle costs $5. For more information on the service and parking in Franconia Notch State Park, visit franconianotchstatepark.com.
