National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said the Senior Pass and the Access Pass will still be available at national parks, but the option of receiving a pass by mail may better suit some people “Any change that makes it more convenient to come to the parks is a change for the better,” Jarvis says.
"National parks are places to share with children, grandchildren, and other family members. They facilitate recreation and healthy living. Many parks, including Yellowstone, Shenandoah, and Denali, have trails that are accessible to people with limited mobility and to wheelchair users. We also have many accessible camping and picnic areas," Jarvis adds.

You can print out an application for either pass at http://store.usgs.gov/pass/index.html. Once the application package is received and the documentation verified, the pass will be mailed to you.
