The Sequoia Shuttle whisks its passengers from Visalia to Sequoia National Park, a 400,000-acre nature preserve that houses General Sherman, the largest tree in the world. During rides, an informational video prepares riders for the natural wonders ahead, ensuring that the trees’ height doesn’t intimidate insecure basketball stars. Once in the park, visitors choose from three free in-park routes, which provide easy access to campgrounds, parking lots, and landmarks such as the Crescent Meadow and the Giant Forest Museum. The Sequoia Shuttle cuts down on the exhaust fumes and noise pollution that private vehicles inject into the park atmosphere, preserving a peaceful environment where critters can roam and trees can nurse their woodpecker-induced concussions.
Central Valley Smog is a test-only facility. What that means is a shorter wait: drivers are in and out without having to deal with a staff that's busy repairing cars or helping trucks study for an upcoming test. Instead, Central Valley is an official smog-check center and provides smog tests for both standard and diesel vehicles. After inspections, technicians issue a gross polluter certification to prove that your vehicle isn't to blame for California being on the West Coast.

Cars careen through the automatic vestibule, where robotic scrubbers loosen dirt and tickle the underbelly, all within five minutes or fewer.
