Free YARTS to Yosemite on Earth Day Weekend – April 21 & 22, 2018

As promised, the free day schedules for April 21st & 22nd, 2018, have been released. Please note that Run 8 (leaving Yosemite in the morning) will be the only bus that stops at all Yosemite Valley YARTS stops. All other buses will depart from the Visitor Center. Visit us online at

April 21st & 22nd is Earth Day Weekend, so here are a few tips:

  1. Arrive at the bus stop at least 45 minutes prior to the departure time to make sure you get a seat. No reservations will be accepted.
  2. DO NOT wait for the last bus to leave Yosemite Valley. That bus could be overcrowded and you may have to stand the entire trip.
  3. Bring plenty of water and a sweater or light jacket — even though it will be Spring in Yosemite, the weather can change unexpectedly and you could get dehydrated quickly.
  4. Do not interact with the wildlife. Spring is when most animals emerge from their dens, but remember— they are wild animals. Enjoy watching them from a safe distance.

Cindy will be traveling to Yosemite to talk with passengers and take photos. She’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and she will have goodie bags!
