I think you maybe able to take the grey hound to Jackson or Ione but you may have to take a taxi to the prison cause you can't walk. You may also take Amtrak from LA to Sacramento then take a bus to Jackson (they may have one cause of the casino) then a Taxi over to the prison. I think either way you will have to take a taxi. I would call the prison to make sure you can take a Taxi in cause they do a car search(visual) and check all Id's. Good luck I hope you find away to visit.

does the friends outside offer to pick you up? I know in some prisons they pick the girls up from the train station or hotel..

No, the bus system in Amador County does not run on weekends. You can get a taxi but they are very expensive up here. They charge something like $8 per mile. Friends Outside does not offer any bus rides either.

I did go in and talk to the outside friends and he did tell me they did pick up. He did say that it all depends on what day and what weekend. He gave me the card but I have to find it. I will get you the number soon. I just wanted you to know they so pick up. He did say that causes he has to be back at the prison by 3:30pm so it will be a shorter visit.

Mule Creek is on a highway east of Sacramento heading into the Gold Country. There's two ways in from Sacramento and two ways out ... I have never seen a bus out there though I've seen lots of farm animals. Can't imagine how you would get there on public transit unless there is a Friends pickup in the town(s) of Ione, Galt or Jackson. Those are the only places around....it's a seriously rural setting and very pretty. just not on or near a main transit line. Whoever takes you there ...bus, taxi, whatever, will probably be your own personal driver. Just curious, why not drive/ride share?
