Anaheim Resort Transportation (ART), established in 1998 as the Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN)[4] and formerly known as Anaheim Resort Transit,[7][11] is a mass transportation provider in the Anaheim Resort area[7] and its environs[6] in Orange County, California, United States. ART uses a fleet of vehicles, including tourist trolleys,[7] to provide access to hotels, malls, and tourist-related enterprises, which are the main destinations connected by the system.[12]

In 2005, Citizens Against Government Waste criticized an earmark for ART from the United States Congress as wasteful spending.[13]

In 2010, Disney contracted with ART to run shuttles from a Disney-owned parking lot to the Disneyland Resort.[7][14]

Governance[edit]

ART is owned by the Anaheim Transportation Network, a quasi-government agency[7] organized as a nonprofit corporation,[15] its board of directors is made up of representatives from hotels, local government, tourist attractions, and other businesses in the Anaheim Resort and Platinum Triangle.[16] Diana Kotler is the executive director of the organization.[10][16]

Service[edit]
