Buses Over the Years
Since the earliest days of the National Reactor Testing Station, INL’s fleet of motor coaches have safely transported employees to their work locations across the laboratory’s 890 square-mile site. Converting INL’s motor coach fleet to electric or hydrogen power is part of the laboratory’s plan to eliminate or offset the sum of its carbon emissions by 2031.
