Free Apple Hill Shuttle hitting the road

El Dorado Transit will operate the free Apple Hill Shuttle every Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Oct. 6-28.

Parking for the shuttle services will be available at two locations: Schnell School in Placerville and the U.S. Forest Service Ranger Station, just off Highway 50, on Eight Mile Road in Camino.

The Apple Hill Shuttle is an ideal way to visit some of El Dorado County’s most popular orchards, ranches, wineries and family attractions, during the peak of the harvest season, without the headaches of traffic and parking. Shuttle buses will depart every 15 to 20 minutes from both satellite parking lots and visitors can get on and off as many times as they like at any designated shuttle stops throughout Apple Hill. Coordinators will be available at the parking lots to supply visitors with maps and all the information needed to make the most of an Apple Hill visit.

Directions to the shuttle:

From Folsom/Sacramento and points west: U.S. Highway 50 East to Placerville, Exit 48 -Schnell School Road and follow the signs

From Lake Tahoe/Reno and points east: U.S. Highway 50 West to Camino, Exit 54 – Cedar Grove and follow the signs

The Apple Hill Shuttle service is funded in part by a grant from the El Dorado County Air Quality Management District. The service is also sponsored by the Apple Hill Growers Association and operated by the El Dorado County Transit Authority.
