Shuttle Bus Fees and Information
The Reds Meadow Shuttle Bus has provided transit service into the Reds Meadow Valley and to the Devils Postpile National Monument for over 30 years. Most visitors must ride the shuttle to access the Valley and Devils Postpile. Visit the shuttle bus information page for shuttle schedules and other information regarding shuttle bus logistics. For a list of exceptions and exception vehicle fees, scroll down.*
Exceptions to the Mandatory Shuttle Bus
Vehicles meeting any of the following criteria may drive into the Valley; however, the standard amenity fee must be paid at the Minaret Vista Station upon entry or exit:
Fees for exception vehicles or when the shuttle bus is not running
Fees and Information for Bicycles
Cyclists riding both in and out of the valley will not be charged a fee. Cyclists taking the shuttle out of the valley will have to pay the shuttle bus fee on the way out. Exact change is preferred to make the transaction go smoothly.
For visitors wishing to ride the road in, but not out of the valley, buses may carry up to three bikes on front-mounted bicycle racks. Biking off road is not permitted anywhere in the Reds Meadow Valley with one exception. Mountain biking is permitted on the Starkweather Trail only after the shuttle bus has stopped running for the season.
