Where the rubber meets the road. Join us for trolley bus and motor bus rides and see other buses that will be open and on display. IRM is the only museum in the country with regular trolley bus operation and this is the best time of the year to see a variety of trolley buses and motor buses in operation. Great photo opportunities for the bus fans.
