Weekend park-and-ride service to local ski resorts will be coming to Truckee, offering skiers the option to ditch the car and be dropped off at the base of the slopes. The seasonal service will be provided by Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transit (TART) operated by Placer County in partnership with Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and Northstar California.

The winter park-and-ride program will provide free bus service on weekends from late December through mid-March between Truckee park-and-ride locations to Squaw Valley along the State Route 89 corridor and Northstar along the State Route 267 corridor.

TART services will be supplemented with additional bus service, which is being sponsored by both Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and Northstar California. The additional bus service will operate in coordination with TART, offering service every 30 minutes during peak morning and evening periods from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. between park-and-ride lots and ski resorts.

The park-and-ride service for the State Route 89 corridor serving Squaw Valley will operate from the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District administrative offices on Donner Pass Road. The park-and-ride service for the State Route 267 corridor serving Northstar will operate from the Truckee Tahoe Airport District on Truckee Airport Road.

The park-and-ride service will be offered on the following dates:

  • Dec. 28-30
  • Jan. 5-6, 12-13, 19-20, 26-27
  • Feb. 2-3, 9-10, 16-18, 23-24
