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. 5-27. 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 15-20 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: US Highway 50 East to Placerville, Exit No. 48 Schnell School Road and follow the signs.

From Lake Tahoe/Reno and points east: US Highway 50 West to Camino, Exit  No. 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 (El Dorado Transit).

For more information on the Apple Hill Shuttle or any El Dorado Transit services call 530-642-5383 or visit eldoradotransit.com.

    Remember the made up 'vision' in Pollock--a Chateau by subway...talking about shuttles.to the bowling alley. OMG...lolololol Well congrats Camino--hopefully they asked your permission. Can people say "Urban" and people picked on me because I came from a city...well you are right on track following the course some of the big "Urban" places followed. Has someone asked you how you feel about "shuttles" in your community? there was already a study done--were you invited? You know for community input. It is all about the grants. Hopefully they documented the community input on some of these grants.

    This is a great idea! Less traffic for the locals and an adventure for the tourist. Profits for local family businesses. My son worked at Apple Hill one season. He would have to leave an hour early and we only live 5 miles away.

    "Mr K" ............ Fran Duchamp owns her own points of view. You, on the other hand, cloak your sniping in anonymity.

    Mr. K I worked at High hill for four years as a summer job...I was present the day a person who lived on Carson-- came in and smacked the caramel person--blaming her for the traffic (it took several of us to hold back the caramel girl.). Im all for shuttles--if it will save another person from being hit. I was asking if all people were able to participate...in the decision of having them. Because that person who came at us...didnt want anymore visitors at all--they lived across from High hill at the time.. Im thinking it was a small group who decided...correct me if im wrong. Name calling is interesting. I am also amused because when I first moved here many years ago--thats all I heard...oh youre a "city" person...so you dont understand. Well I am a city person--and I so get what is happening now. (wink)

    Oh Mr. K...how about suggesting to those groups they find some grants to help some of their seniors who have to rent out their rooms down there in order to live...or grants to help stop some of the seniors from having to sell off parts of their land to survive. Yay shuttles. October has tour buses for that reason as well (cant more people fit on tour buses than shuttles? save even more air from being dirty--maybe the grant didnt include that option.) ...October is a nightmare down there...and then it stops. I hope your shuttles work.
