Rather than order an Uber or Lyft on your next visit to Lake Tahoe, try calling up one of the local, on-demand shuttles for a ride that’s entirely free. In case you missed that: Yes, on-demand microtransit is free in Tahoe. You don’t have to drive and you don’t have to pay. It even helps reduce pollution.
Microtransit has been on the rise in Lake Tahoe in recent years as an innovative solution to alleviate the region’s traffic gridlock and reduce greenhouse gases. The free shuttles have been picking up passengers throughout North Lake Tahoe, from Incline Village to Tahoma, and out to Northstar and Olympic Valley. This summer, microtransit programs are expanding to Truckee and South Lake Tahoe.
