South Lake Tahoe City Council Commits Over $850,000 to Microtransit Services


SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CA, February 14, 2023 – The South Lake Tahoe City Council committed $862,500 to microtransit services at the February 14 City Council meeting. In addition to renewing the current agreement with the South Shore Transportation Management Association (SS/TMA) by 16 months for a total of $200,000 for the operation of the existing Lake Link microtransit service, the City Council has committed $662,500 toward the expansion of this service. This additional funding commitment is intended to be used as seed money toward further fundraising toward the total $3.25M estimated total cost.


The current service zone encompasses a three-mile area that extends from Kingsbury/Stateline in Nevada to the Al Tahoe/LTCC neighborhoods in California. The additional funding would go toward expanding the service territory to the remainder of the city limits, further enhancing a popular on-demand mobility option. 


Raymond Suarez, the Executive Director of SS/TMA stated “Continuation of the current service and potential expansion to the full city limits represents a tremendous milestone for transit operations and mobility options in the South Shore, benefitting our workforce, those without a vehicle, and those wanting to do their part in reducing vehicle miles travelled. We are incredibly grateful to the City of South Lake Tahoe for being a regional leader in transportation for all.”


“The City strongly believes in ensuring transit opportunities for residents and visitors, and this funding commitment clearly demonstrates that transit is, and will remain, a top priority,” stated Joe Irvin, City Manager.
