Free YARTS rides to Yosemite April 23

As you know, Yosemite National Park experienced an all-time record number of visitors in 2015. At Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System (YARTS), we want to do our part to help visitors be good stewards of the park and enhance their Yosemite experience by encouraging them to take public transportation.

YARTS will be providing free rides to Yosemite on Earth Day, April 23. There is no admission fee for the park when riding YARTS.

YARTS will begin accepting reservations on April 4 and the cut-off date is April 19, or until the buses have been filled. All reservations must be made via email and are accepted on a first come, first served basis and must be for same day round-trip passengers.

All of our regularly scheduled runs will operate as normal, with the exception that all children, age 16 and under, ride free on any YARTS bus all days.
