Press Release –
The Board of ATVOntario Tourism Initiatives Inc. (ATVOntario) announced today that it will offer a common trail pass that will permit ATV Riders an opportunity to ride thousands of kilometres of its trail systems for one price.
“ATVers have consistently asked us to develop a One Pass system that consolidated the passes of the best trails in Ontario.” said Andrew Ryeland, President of ATVOntario. “We listened to our patrons and I’m pleased to announce that we will indeed be offering a One Pass solution this spring. We expect this initiative will create a tremendous surge of interest in our sport and attract ‘ATV tourists’ from across the province and beyond.”
ATVOntario leads the ATV trails initiative by offering a pass system that will go a long way to consolidating trail riding opportunities and associated community products.
ATVOntario is also in serious discussions with other ATV organizations and Trail interests to broaden the scope of the trail offerings in the spirit of its Shared Use principles.
ATVOntario is intent on reaching agreements with other organizations that will allow for incremental investment in trail systems throughout Ontario.
The new pass is planned to be on sale in April 2007 through the atvontario.com website. Pricing has not yet been finalized but it is expected to be very attractive to ATVers and substantially less than similar passes offering multi-trail system access in Ontario.
ATVOntario Regional pass systems will remain available to users that only wish to ride local trail systems.
Where Can I Ride?
ATVOntario offers an answer to the over 250,000 ATVers in Ontario and ten times that number in the bordering US states. Increasingly outdoor enthusiasts are turning to the thrill of discovery aboard an All Terrain Vehicle.
More and more tourism destinations are being developed to accommodate their unique and varied interests. ATVOntario offers adventurers a consolidated, destination based source of information on where to ride, where to eat, where to stay, where to be entertained, where to mingle and many more ‘where’s.
