Getting Here and Around

Many people stop here on the way to Yosemite National Park, about an hour's drive east on Highway 140. YARTS (www.yarts.com), the regional transit system, is a cheap and dependable way to travel among Merced (off the Central Valley's busy Highway 99), Mariposa, and Yosemite Valley. YARTS partners with Amtrak so that riders on the Central Valley's San Joaquin line can detrain in Merced and catch a bus right at the train station. Otherwise, you'll need a car to get here.
