One of the best things about our Yosemite Lakes preserve is that is it literally less than five mile from one of the most popular national parks in our park system, Yosemite. And, thanks to the YARTS (the area’s transportation system), you won’t have to hassle with any driving or parking issues. You can simply hop on the YART, which stops conveniently at the preserve’s front door.
Area Regional Transportation System (YARTS) will now make a stop at Thousand Trails’ Yosemite Lakes Preserve. The Sonora Highway 120N Route will stop at the
preserve’s country store daily through September 30.
Initiated in May of 2000, YARTS has provided park visitors with a convenient, comfortable and economical ride into the park. Allowing Yosemite National Park
visitors to bypass the long waits and frustrations of finding suitable parking, the buses drop off and pick up passengers at the visitor’s center. Once inside the park,
guests can tour the park on the free shuttles.
The bus will stop at Yosemite Lakes at 10:06 a.m. and return at 6:24 p.m. during weekdays. On weekends and holidays departure times from Yosemite Lakes are
8:48 a.m., 10:06 a.m. and 1:28 p.m. Buses will return to the preserve at 11:24 a.m., 6:24 p.m. and 8:24 p.m.
Round-trip tickets from Yosemite Lakes Preserve to the visitors’ center are available for purchase from the driver. Ticket prices are $7 for adults and $5 for seniors and
children under 12. One child, age 12 and under, can ride for free with a parent. The park’s gate fee is included in the fare.
All buses are equipped to accept wheelchairs.
