This weekend, public transit service begins for the first time connecting Fresno to Yosemite. Aside from serving a tourist purpose, the system also will operate as an important commuter and community connection. Thanks to the anonymous comment letting me know the schedule was up!
Stops will be at:
- Fresno Greyhound
- Fresno Amtrak
- Fresno Airport
- Fresno State
- Outside Kaiser Permanente Hospital (near River Park)
- Madera, Highway 145 Park and Ride
- Coarsegold Market
- Oakhurst Best Western
- Tenaya Lodge
- Wawona Hotel
- Yosemite Valley (three stops)
YARTS has developed an extensive long-distance bus network to serve Yosemite.
The first bus leaves the Fresno airport bright and early at 4am, with the next four trips starting at the Greyhound station at 7:52am, 9:10am, 12:10pm and 2:10pm. A final commuter run leaves Fresno at 5:45pm and goes only as far as Oakhurst.
