Hikers and travelers to the high country will be glad to hear that daily YARTS service on the Hwy 120 east/395 route has been extended to include the first two weeks of September (through Sept. 18).? It will then return to weekends only for the remainder of September.
Normally this service operates only on weekends in September, but the late opening of Tioga Pass Road prompted the YARTS Governing Board to provide the additional service.?
The YARTS bus from Yosemite Valley to Tuolumne Meadows and Mono County? leaves at 5 PM from the Valley Visitor Center.? Reservations are not being taken this year, so seating is on a space available basis.? Questions about the service can be resolved by visiting the YARTS web site at www.YARTS.com or by calling Dick Whittington at (209) 723-3153 x311. (D. Whittington – 8/04/05)
