Exclamation Survey for Discover Pass

Okay... today we were asked to bring some ideas forward to our membership and see what you think would work.

Option 1: One pass for $30 transferrable between two (2) vehicles:
Based on these criteria, the agencies believe that an elegant solution to addressing transferability would be to have every Discover Pass be transferrable between two vehicles. Valid passes would have lines for two license plate numbers, and would be clearly displayed in those vehicles recreating on designated state lands. This option:
•Addresses many if not most of the major transferability complaints
•Has virtually no administrative costs or implementation burdens
•Will not dramatically impact pass revenues

oNote: some interpretations of our survey data suggests more people would buy a transferrable pass.
oNote: some interpretations of our survey data suggest that the options below would generate more revenue.
oNote: Our survey data is very preliminary, and we will know more in a week.
•Cause little to no confusion to the consumers, dealers, venders, agency staff, enforcement officers
•Is very simple
•Is fair to new customers, though existing purchaser of two passes for two vehicles could find it inequitable.
•Might help ensure the success of the program overall through increased customer satisfaction.

Option 2: Option 1 plus optional “2 passes” for $45 .
This option has a different suite of pros and cons. It responds both to the user who wants to transfer one pass between two vehicles in a household as well as those users who wish to use their two vehicles at the same time in different state recreation lands. Analyzed against our criteria, this option
•May address a broader range of transferability concerns than Option 1.
•Will be more costly and time consuming to implement/administer
oWill require development of new, auditable product
oWill require more extensive training for staff, dealers, venders, enforcement officers
oThe degree of administrative cost and time is yet to be fully analyzed.

•Runs the risk of creating confusion for consumers and administrators
•In relative terms, may be less simple than Option 1
•May be viewed by some as more fair,
•Could risk consumer frustration for some, but increase satisfaction by others.

Option 3: Option 1 plus optional “$50 unlimited transferability pass”
Based on these criteria, this option has a different suite of pros and cons. This option
•Would address the broadest range of transferability concerns.
•Will be more costly and time consuming to implement/administer
oWill require development of new, auditable product
oWill require more extensive training for staff, dealers, venders, enforcement officers
oThe degree of administrative cost and time is yet to be fully analyzed.

•Runs the risk of creating confusion for consumers and administrators
•In relative terms, may be less simple than Option 1
•May be viewed by some as more fair,
•Could risk consumer frustration for some, but increase satisfaction by others.

Please provide comment and pass it along.. I need feedback by Nov 8th.

One step at a time and we will get there.. Next step is getting a bigger slice of the pie instead of just the 8%. Please note again for those of you putting ORV Tabs on street rigs.. those are not exempt from the pass.. they still view those as street legal and need a pass. Helps our cause for the money but does not get away from the need for the pass.

These options were given to me by the DNR. But they are being worked on by all 3 agencies.
