The Anchorage Convention & Visitors Bureau and several of the city's tourism-related businesses are sponsoring a program to install information pouches in taxis and hotel shuttles that serve the city's Ted Stevens Airport.
Pouches include the 2009 Official Guide to Anchorage and "Local Flavor! The 2009 Official Anchorage Restaurant & Entertainment Guide" as well as brochures and other tourism-related information.
"Cabs and shuttles are the first point of contact for many visitors to Anchorage," said Steve Halloran, vice president of community, member and visitor relations for the ACVB. "Giving people the best possible experience starts by providing them with information right when they need it."
The information pouches will be refilled regularly throughout the summer by ACVB staff and volunteers.
