ARTICLE EXCERPT: Glacier National Park announced Wednesday that it plans on retaining the entire historic Red Bus fleet. The news came after former employees and park advocates expressed concerns over replacing some of the buses.
This year, the National Park Service is putting Glacier’s concessions contract up for bid, which required the winning concessioner to restore a minimum of 15 Red Buses before 2025 and replace the remaining 18 by 2029. The wording of the contract worried advocates, including members of the Glacier Park Foundation, who say the entire fleet is an important part of the region’s history.
