The Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System:

Public Transit to Yosemite



Since it began operating in May of 2000, the Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System, YARTS, has provided an CLICK for larger image.

With YARTS now in its 15th year, the number of new riders continues to grow and we hope you will become one of them.


We say, “Watch the scenery, not the road”. Take away the challenge and stress of driving and the beauty of the trip comes into full focus. Many riders who have been to Yosemite before have told us that they have seen something for the first time while riding on YARTS buses.


We hope you will consider using YARTS for your trip to the Yosemite region. It will let you make the trip to Yosemite part of the pleasure of going.


And I want you to know this: We are always trying to improve the YARTS experience. If you ride with us, and come away with an idea about how we might do it even better, please contact me using the Contact Us link on this site. I will get back to you.
