Bus trips in an all-original 1937 Model 706 Yellowstone Park Bus up the scenic Beartooth Highway are provided by reservation only for families and groups. The reservation is for the “bus” that can accommodate up to 10 passengers; not for individual seats on the bus. If the group or family exceeds 10 passengers, a second bus can be reserved when needed and if available.
Those who take the trip can plan on traveling about 35 miles up the Beartooth Highway from Red Lodge at an elevation of 5,500 feet, to the West Summit of the Beartooth Pass at an elevation of 10,947 feet. The bus slowly travels along about 15-18 mph, to and from the Summit providing ample time to enjoy the breathtaking vistas. The canvas top of the bus is rolled back as weather permits, allowing riders to stand and take in the majestic views. A stop at Vista Point is made along the way. Bus riders may bring along a lunch if desired for a picnic along the highway.
A donation to the Buses of Yellowstone Preservation Trust is requested for the trip. A recommended donation amount is specified upon inquiry. More information regarding these trips may be obtained by calling 406-860-5910 or emailing email@example.com.
