Sequoia Shuttle is a comfortable drive on a windy road. Still, we realize some people are prone to motion sickness more than others. Avoid motion sickness by looking straight ahead out the front window, instead of the side windows. Try arriving to your pick-up location early so you can choose a seat closer to in front of the vehicle upon boarding. Avoid strenuous reading or hand held video games while on board. If you should feel motion sickness while on board, feel free to advise the driver if the sensation becomes unbearable.
To avoid the sensation of your ears plugging from altitude and pressure change, try swallowing frequently. For children, try a piece of hard candy, chewing gum, or a pacifier for smaller children.
There is no cell phone signal in the park, so you may want to make calls before leaving the valley floor.
When transferring to either of the two in-Park shuttle routes, remember to take all the items you brought with you, including trash. If you are bringing luggage with you, please remember luggage space is limited and these items need to be safely stored above your seat in the overhead space.
If you are parking at one of the Shuttle's pick-up locations, search out the signs for the designated parking for the Sequoia Shuttle. Note that regardless of where you leave your vehicle, you should keep all valuables away from plain site and secure all doors and windows. As a courtesy, most locations will allow you to leave your cars parked over night, but you will be leaving your vehicle at your own risk.
Remember to schedule enough time from your hikes, picnics, and outings to get back in time for your return trip to the valley from the Park. If you should miss your reserved return trip, you may be able to return on a later shuttle on “stand by” pending space availability.
