Valley to Tuolumne meadows public bus?

Postby Drew345 » Fri May 24, 2013 6:22 pm

I am planning to do a Yosemite trip with no car. Is there a way to get from the valley floor up to Tuolumne meadows at a decent time (before noon)? I see:
- Yarts goes up from Valley to Tuolumne up at 5:00 PM, (too late)
- Yarts goes down from Tuolumne to the Valley at 10:15 AM (ok time)
- Tuolumne meadows shuttle is free from Tuolumne meadows to Olmstead point several times in the day.

But that schedule is not convenient from the valley up to Tuolumne since 5:00 pm is rather late. I am planning to drop at Porcupine Flat and getting a walk-in campsite, so before noon would be better.
Any other bus I don’t know about or a way up from the valley before noon? Hitchhike? Never did that before.

Take the Hiker's Bus from Yosemite Valley to Tuolumne. Operated by the concessionaire, YCS. Leaves from all hotels in the valley in the morning.
