Glacier Point shuttle or bus

We will be arriving in Yosemite next week and were hoping to hike to Panorama trail down to the Valley from Glacier Point. Are there any buses or shuttles running up to Glacier Point between May 18 and 21 and, if so, how do you make reservations for them? Thanks.

888-413-8869.

Just a few years ago you could call the day before and get a reservation, but last year were stories of people trying to reserve a month in advance and finding it all booked up. With no shuttle service from Badger Pass to GP this year, I expect the demand on the shuttle from the Valley will be even higher. Let us know how it works out for you.

Note that it is a big bus from the Yosemite Valley Lodge to Glacier Point. It's a one way ride on the Glacier Point Tour, $27. The tour begins for the season in late May, but call that number JR gave you to learn the exact date.

There is not a free shuttle for any portion of this journey to Glacier Point.

If you're a friendly chatty kind of person, you might find another person or family who is willing to give you a ride up to Glacier Point, about 1 hour.

Thanks for both responses. We were able to book the bus tour for Saturday morning. Looking forward to the hike!
