Bus in Merced

Comfortable buses offer a 2½-hour ride via Hwy 140 to Yosemite three (winter) and five (summer) times daily, picking up in several places in Merced, including the Merced Transpo Center and Amtrak station. The route includes stops at Mariposa, Midpines and the Yosemite Bug Lodge & Hostel. There’s limited space on the YARTS buses for bicycles, so show up early.
