Making Transportation More Equitable

Transportation equity means making sure all the different groups that make up a community have equal levels of access to affordable and reliable transportation options. With particular focus on groups that are traditionally underserved and affected by persistent poverty or inequality, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) is addressing transportation equity by identifying the needs, concerns, and vulnerabilities of all of Tahoe's residents and visitors.

You can now explore the Lake Tahoe Transportation Equity Study through interactive maps and information online. The maps bring clarity to transportation barriers for disadvantaged communities, including lack of access to fresh food, healthcare, and recreation.

Learn more about the study, dive into some initial analyses, and take the survey on the project website.

Help inform the study and final recommendations to make transportation at Tahoe equitable for all. Take the survey now through October 1.

How Can Public Tranist Meet Your Mobility Needs?

TRPA is also seeking feedback from transit users on what services may be missing from Tahoe’s transit systems. The agency is performing an annual survey in October under the California Transportation Development Act to identify any unmet transit needs and ensure that funds from the act continue to help improve transit in the Lake Tahoe Region.

Lake Tahoe’s proximity to major metropolitan areas in Northern California and Nevada make it a natural outdoor playground for the growing millions of people looking for unparalleled summer and winter recreation opportunities.
Transportation partners in the Tahoe Region have developed a regional vision for Tahoe’s transportation system, but major transit and infrastructure investments are needed to improve safety and address unsustainable peak congestion for residents and visitors. The Lake Tahoe Transportation Action Plan represents the region’s approach to funding and implementing the projects needed to create a world-class transportation system at Tahoe.

Microtransit Expands to South Shore

In July, transportation and tourism partners on the South Shore launched Lake Link, a free, on-demand microtransit service that covers a central service area on both sides of the state line. The free, app-based rideshare service is adding to destination stewardship and transportation improvements in the region, including the popular TART Connect microtransit service available across the North Shore.
