Tahoe Backcountry Alliance will implement a Micro Transit Pilot Program for the West for back-country skiers to access trails where parking is limited or not available in the winter. On Jan. 18, Feb. 15 and March 14, Tahoe Backcountry Alliance will offer a free shuttle from the Transit Center in Tahoe City to the more popular back-country destinations along the West Shore, dropping off and picking up skiers every two hours throughout the day from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The Alliance’s goal is to draw attention to the access issues in the Basin while demonstrating the viability of micro transit to ease some of the congestion issues that will likely continue to increase as the popularity of back-country recreation continues to grow.
