Founded in 2008 and incorporated in 2011, the Buses of Yellowstone Preservation Trust, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Red Lodge, Montana, incorporating qualities of a historical focused organization located in a historic property and owning one of the few original operable Model 706 Yellowstone Park Buses.
Our mission is to:
The historic building in which we showcase our original operable Yellowstone National Park vehicles and memorabilia is located in the historic commercial district of Red Lodge. The building sits on the main street of Red Lodge and is viewable by all who travel to and through the town. The building is primarily open to the public on weekends (late spring through early fall) and holidays, for special community events and by appointment. Individuals and groups are free to enter the building when open and view all that is showcased therein. There is no charge for entry.
We are an all volunteer organization. Donations received from the public are the primary source of income for maintaining the historic vehicles and for covering organizational operating expenses. Bus trips for families and groups up the scenic Beartooth Highway in an original Yellowstone Park bus is one way in which donations may be made. Information regarding these trips may be obtained by contacting us.
