Island Explorer Bus Stops Coplon Associates has designed fourteen stops for the Island Explorer (IEX) shuttle bus in Acadia National Park and the surrounding communities. The stops range in size and scope from simple roadside pull-offs to service hubs with shelters, seating and other amenities. The success of the IEX system has been notable; with ridership reaching capacity in peak summer months. To accommodate the demand, ANP sought to improve the flow of the IEX buses thru several popular and congested locations within ANP and upgrade facilities for waiting passengers. The project was staged through several phases beginning in 1999 and completed in 2014.
