The Yosemite Bike-Share Program, which launched as a Conservancy-funded pilot in 2018, aims to help address traffic congestion in the Valley by providing alternative transit options for short trips.

The dockless bicycles, stationed near Valley campgrounds, encourage overnight visitors to pedal to nearby areas, rather than drive. Instead of relying on cars for quick errands, such as picking up camping supplies in Yosemite Village, visitors can use a mobile app to unlock a bike, cruise on flat paths, and avoid the hassle of crowded roads and parking areas. This year, your support will help the park refine program logistics, add more bikes and locations, and evaluate options for a long-term program.

Your contribution will help the park continue to expand eco-friendly transit options and reduce the number of cars on Valley roads.

Project Notes

Many visitors who stay in Yosemite Valley campgrounds drive their cars relatively short distances for meals or trips to the store, or to trailhead for day hikes, which adds to traffic congestion and visitor frustration unnecessarily.
