Wyoming’s startlingly low escalator count makes a national splash

Wyoming Yellowstone

It has mountains, trees, lakes, bucking broncos and buffalo, but Wyoming has remarkably few escalators — two sets, to be exact, both located in banks in Casper, according to recent national news stories detailing how that fact was uncovered by a Casper newspaper reporter in 2008. The Atlantic did a followup piece in July showing that the Cowboy State has not made any strides since then and exploring the possible reasons why. The state’s newly built airport is single level, and state and tourism officials told the magazine that they are not aware of any other escalators other than the two sets in Casper.
