The Regional Transportation Plan will improve water quality, air quality, scenic resources, noise levels, and recreation resources across the Tahoe Region. According to TRPA, Tahoe’s transportation system should meet the daily needs of transit-dependent riders and employees, make it easier for recreational travelers to use transit, and assure visitors they can get around without their cars.
The plan focuses on:
- Transit: Adding services to provide 15-minute service between town centers and recreation destinations, 30-to 60-minute service between neighborhoods and town centers, and inter-regional service for commuters and visitors from neighboring regions.
- Technology: Connecting people with information about the many ways to travel around the Region, providing better data and analysis, and ensuring charging facilities are available for electric vehicles.
- Trails: Increasing trips by foot and bike by providing walking and biking routes.
- Communities and Corridors: Bringing plan elements together with a corridor planning framework connecting workers to jobs, visitors to recreation, and residents to town centers, housing, and recreation.
