Public Transit to Yosemite

via YARTS - Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System

Tuolumne County  Transit has partnered with YARTS and Yosemite National Park to help promote the public transit alternative into the Park!  

We believe this is a great option for many visitors looking to get to Yosemite, for the following reasons:

  • Multiple Pickup locations and times (Sonora, Jamestown, Groveland and many Lodging establishments)

  • Convenience (no driving or parking hassles)

  • Cost (Adult fare ($32) includes Park entrance fee ($35) and child 12 and younger)

  • Experience (the drive to Yosemite is dramatic and beautiful, see it all through big windows on the bus)

  • Bus Only lanes (on busy days in the Park, some lanes are converted to bus only!)

Thanks for considering this option, and if you still have questions, give us a call 877-989-2787, between 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time (U.S.).  After 6 p.m. message/response phone.
