Hybrid-Car_688
Yellowstone is replacing its fleet with efficient, advanced-technology vehicles where possible.
 

…creating opportunities to reduce fossil fuel use in our vehicles.

Yellowstone National Park has 310 miles of paved road and our developed areas are an average of 30 miles apart. Just getting around Yellowstone takes considerable time, adding challenges to daily operations, and the creation of greenhouse gas emissions through burning of fossil fuels. Yellowstone plans to use more fuel efficient vehicles, and choose the right vehicles for the job. Using the best technology available will help provide opportunities that enable and encourage greener transportation.
