Tahoe Transportation District Begins Paid Parking With Park Tahoe Pilot For The Tahoe East Shore Trail
90 new off-highway parking spots completed last year near Ponderosa Ranch Road provide safer recreational access to the State Route 28 Corridor and Tahoe East Shore Trail
In an effort to enhance recreational access to Lake Tahoe by providing and maintaining trails and safe off-highway parking, the Tahoe Transportation District (TTD) unveiled the Park Tahoe pilot program at the Tahoe East Shore Trail trailhead, located north of Ponderosa Ranch Road. The new paid parking facility offers 90 metered spots to expand off-highway parking options along the heavily frequented stretch of State Route 28 from Incline Village to Sand Harbor State Park. The new transit-accessible parking consists of three lots, which were completed last summer by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). Pay station kiosks are located at each lot and accept credit card payments only.
