I am quite confused with the following i read via the Yosemite page: Do i need Chains.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO DRIVING IN THE PARK IF I DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH CHAINS?
Yes. Public transportation runs up and down the Hwy 140 corridor from Merced into Yosemite Valley. You can generally reach the town of El Portal without needing chains, and there are bus stops at the hotels in El Portal. YARTS bus service
Does this mean that I am able to drive up my rental car (no chains allowed) up to Midpines or EL Portal to my hotel?
If not, I guess the best way is still stay via YARTS from Mariposa?
Appreciate the advices. Thanks!
