Please follow these simple guidelines to complete your reservation and ensure a quality shuttle experience. Advance reservations are strongly recommended. Same-day arrangements can often be accommodated but customers with reservations receive top priority.

Note: There is no cell phone reception at the Casa Loma meeting place, put-in or take outs. There is sporadic service in Groveland and in scattered locations along Highway 120 as you approach Yosemite National Park.

Advanced Reservations - Please fill out one passenger reservation form per group and return to TRS at least one week before your trip via email or post. Include a check (for the total amount) if that is your preferred payment method. If using a credit card, follow up your written reservation with a call to our office and provide your card information (Visa/MC/Disc only.) We will send you a confirmation letter and a set of instructions once we receive your payment.

If you need to cancel your shuttle you may do so up to 48 hours before your trip and receive a full credit to be used at a later date. There are no cash refunds. No credits will be issued if cancelled within 48 hours.

Same-Day/Last Minute Tranport - Please look for a TRS shuttle vehicle at the Casa Loma Meeting Place and speak with the driver directly. Drivers are regularly present between 8AM-930AM or until reserved shuttle services depart. S/he will accept payment on site and issue you a receipt. If drivers have already departed for their scheduled route, feel free to flag them down or contact them at the Meral’s Pool put-in.

You may also contact us by phone. Even though there is no phone service in the immediate area, voicemail is checked frequently throughout the day so please leave a message with your name, shuttle needs and coordinates and we will make every effort to contact you before you head down river.
