Yosemite's popularity means there's potential for traffic problems and the air pollution that goes with it. The park service and concessioner have arranged an easy solution in the Valley's shuttle system. Leave your car in the Day Use Parking at Yosemite Village or Curry Village, and take a shuttle to 90% of the places you want to go: campgrounds, stores, restaurants, shops, trailheads, lodges, etc. The shuttles are free
. They're hybrid fueled so produce few emissions. In summer they run every 10 minutes. Seasonally, there are even special buses that go direct to the Visitor Center from the Yosemite Village day use lot and one that'll take you all the way down-Valley to El Capitan Meadow. You'll find a map and schedule in the park's newspaper, the Yosemite Guide. Great deal!
