During most summers, you can take transit to the trail with complementary parking available at the old Incline elementary school on Southwood Blvd., just off Tahoe Blvd. (SR 28). People can park and ride the East Shore Express to the Tahoe East Shore Trail trailhead. The East Shore Express also stops Sand Harbor State Park and Hidden Beach.
In the spirit of social distancing, East Shore Express service is suspended for the Summer 2020 season and not operating this year at this park-n-ride location due to COVID-19. TTD plans to have the East Shore Express running again in 2021.
Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transportation (TART) also operates a summer bus service along the north shore of Tahoe to the Tahoe East Shore Trail trailhead. TTD and TART transit services are currently free to ride for all passengers. For more information on TART services, explore their site here.
