Cabrillo National Monument Offers Electronic Park Entrance Passes

For Immediate Release: March 14, 2019
Release No.: 2019-04



Cabrillo National Monument announces the opportunity for park visitors to purchase their park entrance passes electronically through YourPassNow. Once visitors purchase and save their digital pass to their cell phone, or print and bring their purchased pass with them, Rangers will scan their pass at the entrance station. This convenient new service will give visitors the choice of purchasing a park pass in advance, or purchasing a pass in person at the park entrance station. This option is already available to visitors at several National Park Service sites across the country.


“We are excited to bring YourPassNow to Cabrillo National Monument. This technology provides visitors with the option for buying their park entrance passes in advance while on the road or from home,” stated Cabrillo National Monument Superintendent Andrea Compton.

YourPassNow provides an alternative to the traditional paper-based, in-person purchase method while simultaneously providing public lands with a tool to help manage the visitor experience. Using a computer or a personal device, visitors can purchase park entrance passes from at no additional cost. Once purchased, passes can be downloaded or stored to an electronic wallet for immediate and future use. Passes are also emailed for those that want to print their pass.
