North Tahoe/Truckee Transport Program
The Tahoe Transportation District (TTD) and the Town of Truckee partnered to develop a one-year pilot program to provide inter-regional and out of area transportation for older adults. The North Tahoe/Truckee Transport program is a shared-ride, origin to destination, public transportation service. The service will provide monthly transportation to Nevada City/Grass Valley, Auburn/Roseville/Sacramento/Davis, Reno, Quincy, South Lake Tahoe, and North Lake Tahoe. Inter-regional service will connect North Lake Tahoe communities and Truckee. The program offers ADA accessible transportation to adults over 60 years of age. A predetermined schedule allows passengers to plan ahead and schedule appointments in destination cities. Reservations must be made at least 72 hours before the scheduled trip and seats not reserved by seniors will be available to individuals with disabilities and those with demonstrated need.
This program presents an opportunity to reduce the negative impact of isolation and health disparities among transit-dependent populations by enhancing access to medical and dental providers, as well as other resources in the region. The North Tahoe/Truckee Transport program reflects positive community values by supporting those who are transportation-disadvantaged to remain in their homes and community, allowing older adults to age in place, and promoting a balanced community.
