Park TransportationBefore automobiles were admitted to Yellowstone in 1915, the park was served by horse-drawn vehicles designed to operate on steep and rugged mountain roads. Stagecoaches met visitors at train stations and carried them into the park. Only a few hardy adventurers explored the park in private carriages.
Visitors enjoyed the camaraderie of long drives through spectacular surroundings, but the slow rate of travel combined with choking clouds of dust led many visitors to welcome the arrival of motorized vehicles and improved roads.
