Reno/Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is the next closest commercial airport to the Mammoth Lakes area. It is served by about a dozen commercial airlines. Mammoth Lakes is 163 miles (262 km) from the Reno airport, along US-395. Carson Ridgecrest Eastern Sierra Transit (CREST) connects Reno/Tahoe International Airport with Mammoth Lakes by bus (coach) on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, with one trip each day in each direction.

Municipal airports are also located in the towns of Bishop, Bridgeport and Lee Vining.

Travel by auto

The Mammoth Lakes area is easily reached year round via US-395 from Reno, Nevada or from Southern California, via CA-14 from Los Angeles, and via Interstate 80 and US-50 from the east and west (then south on US-395). Except when roads are closed due to snow, it can also be reached from the west via CA-120 through Yosemite National Park over Tioga Pass, via CA-108 over Sonora Pass, and via CA-89 over Monitor Pass. (Because of high elevations, roads that cross passes on the Sierra Crest are often closed for several months during the winter. Tioga Pass is generally open only from late May or early June until early November and use of CA-120 over Tioga Pass requires payment of Yosemite National Park's entrance fees or possession of a National Parks entry pass.)

Travel by bus (coach)

The Eastern Sierra Transit Authority provides scheduled bus (coach) public transit between Reno, Nevada and Mammoth Lakes and between Mammoth Lakes and Lancaster, California. Its routes can be used to create connections to other transit services.

Yosemite Area Rapid Transit System (YARTS) provides summer-only scheduled bus (coach) service between Mammoth Lakes and Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park. YARTS also travels between Yosemite Valley and Merced, California, where a rail connection can be made with the San Francisco Bay area through the Central Valley on Amtrak's San Joaquin route.

These tour bus lines provide service between Southern California and Mammoth Lakes; some operate only during the ski season:
* Gold Coast Tours 800.638.6427 / 714.449.6888
* New Horizon Tours 805.499.7544
* Pacific Sports Tours 310.798.1234
* Sierra Ski & Rafting Tours 888.667.1110 / 714.667.1111
