Stateline, Nevada – A new website launched by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA), Tahoe Transportation District (TTD), and visitor organizations provides a hub of easy-to-access information about a wide range of travel options in the Tahoe Basin.
The goal of www.LinkingTahoe.com is to increase public awareness of travel options for people to get to, from, and around the Tahoe Basin and encourage more people to walk, bike, use transit, take water shuttles, and choose off-peak times to drive to better manage congestion on the region’s roads.
The website is a one-stop-shop for travel options throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin, providing links to transportation services and ways to travel to and from the Tahoe Basin from neighboring metropolitan areas such as Sacramento, Reno, and San Francisco.
“We’re excited to share information about the many travel options at Lake Tahoe, and to use this new tool to encourage people to try getting around in new ways before they make their travel plans,” said Rich Looney, travel management coordinator for TRPA.
Brochures about the website are being distributed to chambers of commerce, visitor centers, hotels, rental properties, and other visitor-serving locations throughout the Tahoe Basin.
“This website is just the first step in increasing awareness of travel options at Lake Tahoe,” said Danielle Hughes, capital program manager for TTD. “It will continue to be updated with new travel options as they become available, including new bikeshare and rideshare programs and services provided by new micro-transit pilot projects. In the future, we also hope to work with public and private partners to provide real-time information services to help people make their travel choices.”
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency leads the cooperative effort to preserve, restore, and enhance the unique natural and human environment of the Lake Tahoe Region, while improving local communities, and people’s interactions with our irreplaceable environment.
