New website aims to relieve traffic congestion in Lake Tahoe Basin
A new website launched by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Tahoe Transportation District, and visitor organizations provides a hub of easy-to-access information about a wide range of travel options in the Tahoe Basin.
The goal of www.LinkingTahoe.com is to increase public awareness of travel options for people to get to, from, and around the Tahoe Basin and encourage more people to walk, bike, use public transit, water shuttles, and choose off-peak times to drive to better manage congestion on the region's roads.
The website is a one-stop-shop for travel options throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin, providing links to transportation services and ways to travel to and from the Basin from neighboring metropolitan areas.
“We’re excited to share information about the many travel options at Lake Tahoe, and to use this new tool to encourage people to try getting around in new ways before they make their travel plans,” said Rich Looney, travel management coordinator for TRPA.
Brochures about the website are being distributed to chambers of commerce, visitor centers, hotels, rental properties, and other visitor-serving locations throughout the Tahoe-Basin.
