Lone Pine to Mammoth on 06/06/2008 14:10:58 MDT Print View

Does anyone have any information/advice about getting a shuttle/ride on 07/31/2008 from Lone Pine at 0Dark:30 in order to make the the YARTS shuttle in Mammoth at 0700. I am happy to pay for gas and a little something for the effort.
Thanks,
Jim

I need the same 8/9 or 8/10! on 06/11/2008 17:01:22 MDT Print View

There isn't much available. Did you check into the Inyo County transportation website? The Crest bus leaves Lone Pine at 2:50 PM Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, arriving in Mammoth 2 hours later. You would have to spend the night in Mammoth to catch YARTS.

I face the same issue on Saturday 8/9, needing to be in Mammoth the next day. At this point my plan is to arrive at Whitney Portal early afternoon and accost every hiker coming off the trail to see if I can catch a ride headed North. If that doesn't pan out I'll drive up to Mammoth and leave my car there, then deal with getting back to it after my hike.

Thanks James from Long Beach,

I just took a look at the CREST link you had noted and that saves me a big headache getting to Lone Pine from Mammoth Lakes. Now I just got to get a ride up to Horseshoe Meadows on august 1st to do an end-around to catch the JMT and not have to deal with My Whitney.

Thanks for you information, Randy from Redondo Beach

Re: Crest link (web site) has moved ( a year ago) - bus for JMT on 06/17/2008 22:41:39 MDT Print View

I called up Crest today and the link you gave, Jim, is one year out of date. Crest is no longer under the County, it is independent now. Use this link and see current schedules.

Note, that the bus that goes all the way from Mammoth to Lone Pine and back is only M,W,F but daily buses go to/from Lone Pine to Bishop and different buses to from Bishop to/from Mammoth.
