New bike-sharing program

Placer County will be launching a bike-sharing program in North Lake Tahoe with Zagster in late August. The program will expand Zagster’s existing partnership with the Truckee Tahoe Airport District in Truckee to Tahoe City and Kings Beach, adding a fleet of 15 for-rent bikes at five planned stations.

Bikes may be accessed by paying with a smartphone or purchasing barcodes at local stores. The proposed locations are the Placer County Administration Building, Heritage Plaza and the old firehouse in Tahoe City, and at the Brook Avenue parking lot and the plaza along state Route 28 in Kings Beach. | placer.ca.gov
