I hope this new

I hope this new concessionaire will be a little more benign towards motorcoach tour operators than its predecessor. That they take into account motorcoach passengers are eiher the elderly or the very young who do not drive their own cars and alleviate the heavy traffic Yosemite has suffered from. They deserve some consideration.
