The Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System (YARTS) is a wonderful way to take advantage of all that Yosemite has to offer. Within the Yosemite Valley itself, YARTS is a completely free service that takes you to different areas within the park. If you booked accommodation outside of the park you can use YARTS to get to your hotel economically and without the use of a car. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view as YARTS winds through the beautiful wilderness on one of its four routes.
Check out the YARTS map and schedule on their website at YARTS.COM. It is important to keep in mind that travel from accommodations outside of the park down to the Yosemite Valley can take an hour or more depending on where you are traveling from. The buses are air-conditioned, which is essential during the summer. They are also bike friendly as well as wheelchair accessible.
