Is there a shuttle from the Valley to Tuolumne?

Postby frankutchen » Sun Aug 04, 2019 10:33 am

Hello all, 2 weeks from now I'm backpacking from Tuolumne down to the Valley. I would like to leave my car in the valley, then get up to Tuolumne, hike down to the Valley, then drive home from there. Questions:

1. Is there a shuttle from the Valley up to Tuoloumne, and if so, any idea where I can get info on the times it leaves the valley?

2. If such a shuttle exists, then where can I leave the car in the valley?

If nowhere to park in the valley, then looks like we will have to park in Tuolumne, do the trip to the valley, and then shuttle ourselves from the valley back up to toulumne when the trip is over. However, I would still need info on how exactly to shuttle from the valley to Tuolumne.

Thank you in advance for any info you can offer.

There is a hiker bus that leaves Yosemite Valley every morning at 8 am and drives up to Tuolumne Meadows. After lunch, it turns around and heads back to Yosemite Valley. $23 pp each way.

Here's a link to the website: https://www.travelyosemite.com/things-t ... bus-tours/

You can download a pdf of the schedule as well

I just did that hike, but left car at TM and camped there at Backpacker Camp before hiking out the next morning. There are two YART buses that leave daily at 4pm and 5pm from the Valley. $11 one way. Worked out well.
