South Lake Tahoe Specialized Transportation Service
The Tahoe Transportation District (TTD) is implementing a pilot program to provide interregional and out of area transportation for adults 60 years of age and older and individuals with disabilities. The South Lake Tahoe-Specialized Transportation Service (SLT-STS) will provide monthly trips to Sacramento, Placerville/western El Dorado County, North Lake Tahoe/Truckee, and Reno/Carson City. The local service will bring those living in outlying neighborhoods to programs and services in the community, as well as provide transportation to regional programs and services they are unable to access without assistance. The local service area is consistent with the South Shore Area ADA Demand Response Service area and trips will be scheduled every Tuesday between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The regional trips will be scheduled based on number of passengers, destination, and appointment times. If severe weather is forecasted, the trip may be cancelled.
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 SLT-STS 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.
The SLT-STS program is supported by El Dorado County and Barton Foundation; and is endorsed by the Tahoe Area Coordinated Council for the Disabled, Tahoe Basin Senior Citizens Center, Truckee North Tahoe-Transportation Management Association, Tahoe Metropolitan Planning Agency, and the City of Lake Tahoe.
