Shuttle at Devils postpile

Postby overheadx2 » Sat Sep 17, 2016 8:26 pm

I'm headed to DP this weekend and had a few ?'s. I read that the DP shuttle stopped after Labor Day. Does this mean you can drive down any time? I was planning on shuttling between Agnew M and DP for a short week end loop stopping at Altha lake and Mineret Lake. Any suggestions of which service in town would help me drop off the car at DP and take me back to A. M.?

Yes

Ask Markskor, he may be able to help. Uber is also available in Mammoth, there is also taxi and shuttle services available, though these shuttle services are expensive.

Mark, I don't have a problem with calling a taxi service or uber, I was just curious if there was a service that was reliable around town that you would recommend. That said, if you wanted to make a quick $40, Id love to meet up with you for a couple of minutes and do the shuttle. We will be at devils postpile around 7:30 AM on friday.

I am looking into uber and Lyft services in the mammoth and Crowley areas. I am being told that there are no services in the area. Does anyone know if mammoth in fact does not have those services? That seems odd that they wouldn't.

Drop me a PM...$40 seems a fair deal... (cheaper than) Mammoth Cab - 760 934-8294 or Mammoth Transportation Services 760 709-6459...even though 7:30 AM a bit early...but OK.
How many people?

Wow, ONLY $35 for one person and $60 something for 4 with a 20% gratuity seems like a lot to go 10 miles. We ended up renting a car for the 4 days (used it for 2) and it was still way cheaper. I had no idea shuttle services in mammoth were so expensive. I'm sure there is a reason for the extreme pricing, but with prices like that Uber is just around the corner.
