Local Transportation

The Mammoth Transit System offers a convenient, fun, and friendly alternative to getting around town. A fixed route system allows visitors to get around town without a car. The Dial-a-Ride service requires a fare and is available to all riders, with priority given to special needs passengers. Whether for work or play, we have a ride for you!


Dogs are a fun part of Mammoth’s mountain environment and are permitted on the Mammoth Transit System (Excludes MAS Bike Park Shuttle). For the safety and peace of mind of all passengers, dogs must be leashed and muzzled, or carried in a cage.
