Sequoia Shuttle 2016 Season Highlights

Posted on November 8th, 2016 in News

Sequoia Shuttle has completed another wonderful season of transporting nature lovers from all over the world to Sequoia National Park! Having the privilege of serving the highest number of passengers on record, this has been one of our most successful seasons yet. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun! We can hardly believe it’s been ten years since we began helping adventurers explore the great outdoors. In 2016, we celebrated our 10th anniversary in style, with an abundance of themed discounts, lists and festivities. Here’s a brief recap of some of the fun things that happened last year:

  • 10th Anniversary Celebration
    To kick off the 2016 season, Sequoia Shuttle hosted a 10th Anniversary Celebration at the Visalia Transit Center on May 26, featuring a press conference and celebration of Sequoia Shuttle’s accessibility to the various trails inside the park. The event culminated in a season-opening ride to the park, including a ranger-guided tour of wheelchair-accessible attractions.dsc_0206
  •  Wheelchair Accessibility
    Over the past ten years, Sequoia Shuttle has helped many people access Sequoia National Park, including students, hikers, backpackers, families and senior citizens. We wanted to emphasize that the trip on board the Sequoia Shuttle is easy and convenient for everyone, especially those with differing accessibility needs. Each 16-passenger shuttle is wheelchair-accessible, with comfortable seats, storage space for gear and an informative video during the trip.
  • Instagram Takeover: Rob Bradley
    In July of 2016, we had Rob Bradley, a weatherman from ABC30, take the Shuttle to the park and host an Instagram takeover. With tons of great footage, all from a weatherman and true outdoorsman’s prospective. Thanks, Rob!dsc_0581
  • Instagram Takeover: Michael Gregory
    Toward the end of the 2016 season, we sent Michael Gregory to Sequoia via the Shuttle to take photos and do an Instagram takeover. Michael specializes in photographing the beauty of our local National Parks and has a large group of followers that can’t wait for the next glimpse through his lens. His photos and posts on Sequoia did not disappoint._o4a8023
  • 10 Things to Do
    In honor of the 10th anniversary, we posted some special features to the Sequoia Shuttle website in our Things to Do section. These lists, each ten items long, focused on things visitors wouldn’t want to miss—photos, attractions, hikes and gear. They highlighted the best part about Sequoia Shuttle: affordable access to a park with endless opportunities for adventure and exploration.
