Summer shuttles let you sight see as you travel from the San Joaquin Valley to these parks. They also reduce air pollution by reducing the number of cars on the road, and save you from a search for parking. All buses are wheelchair accessible.

Ride the Sequoia Shuttle on Highway 198 from Visalia and Three Rivers to Sequoia National Park's Giant Forest, or take the Big Trees Shuttle from Fresno or Sanger up Highway 180 to Grant Grove in Kings Canyon National Park. Shuttles run daily from late May into September. The round-trip ride costs $15 per person, and includes the park entrance fee.

When you arrive in the parks, transfer to free in-park shuttles that travel to visitor centers, lodges, campgrounds, and park features in each area. The shuttles do not connect within the parks.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

YARTS is also available from Fresno to Yosemite Valley. The bus picks up from the airport, amtrack and hotels right off of the 41. Its a good option for thru hikers flying into Fresno.
