There's more bad news. A new company called Aeromark or something like that (arrow mark?) has now taken over the shuttle bus. It is no longer free. The driver attempted to charge me $4 cash (they can only take cash, you know how many hikers and climbers carry cash on them), to shuttle from Tuolunme campground to Tenaya Lake which is a joke. The bus runs on natural gas and that distance was about 6 miles so $4 is a 600% mark up?. I told her that the website stated that it was free as well as the front entrance AND the park map they hand out. She let me on for free but then I got the whole story about the new hidden fee. It IS posted on the new grill and hiker store on a piece of paper. So don't go up there any more thinking you'll get to take the shuttle back to your car unless you've got cold hard cash. She actually asked me to call my congressman or make up a Facebook petition to get this to stop. Anyone want to put in some leg work?
