YARTS - Public Transit to Yosemite : How to Ride
How to Ride

The Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System (YARTS) is a regularly scheduled, fixed route, public transit system that operates year-round in the Yosemite region.
YARTS provides service into Yosemite National Park and gateway communities in comfortable, air-conditioned buses. Ride YARTS to safely enjoy the scenery instead of watching the road. All YARTS fares into Yosemite include the park entrance fee. See the ABOUT YARTS page for more general information about the YARTS service. Below you can find links to pages that address specific policies regarding the service.

Bus stops and request drop-off policy

YARTS drivers will stop at all designated stops. They may stop at additional locations that they determine to be safe and accessible for unloading only. Roads in this area are narrow, and YARTS does not provide pick up anywhere other than designated stops.


Bags are allowed on YARTS buses, including backpacks of any size. Some backpacks may need to be stored in compartments under the passenger seating.


Bikes are allowed in the storage compartments under the bus, as space allows. Bikes can also be rented inside the national park.


All YARTS buses are wheelchair accessible. However, this is on a per-ride basis and is dependent upon seating locations on the bus. Please contact YARTS 48 hours prior to your boarding, and we’ll help make sure your ride is accessible.

Service animals are allowed on all YARTS buses.
