Central California residents longing to spend more time in one of the nation’s most beautiful parks have been given a golden opportunity, thanks to a two-year pilot program for the Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System (YARTS) that started in May.
For only $30, riders can purchase a round-trip bus ticket from Fresno to Yosemite National Park. The new route goes through several Valley and mountain towns running up to the park entrance, including communities surrounding Highway 120 and Highway 140.
The timing of the bus route opening was chosen to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Yosemite National Park. A map of all the routes included in the new YARTS line can be viewed on the bus system’s website.
