12 Vanpools Currently Running in North Lake Tahoe

The North Lake Tahoe Workforce Vanpool began with ten vanpools in December 2023, and there are currently 12 vanpools running. Funds are available for up to 20 vanpools, which includes a goal of three vanpools for employees from small businesses in the region. Participating employers include Palisades Tahoe, Granite Peak Management, Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal and Everline Resort and Spa. In the first three months, the program eliminated 6,213 vehicle trips and saved 231,350 vehicle miles traveled, 9,109 gallons of fuel, and 176,308 pounds of carbon dioxide.


About the Program

This program reduces the cost of vanpools for businesses and individual riders and increases the vanpool subsidy available to commuters through the existing Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County Smart Trips program. The program helps address regional transportation needs while helping preserve the local natural environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion.  

Vanpool vehicles are provided through Commute with Enterprise. All commuter vans include 24/7 insurance coverage, 24/7 emergency roadside assistance, customer service support, maintenance, fuel card, and downtime credit. All-wheel drive vehicles are available through the program. A guaranteed ride home program is also provided through the Washoe RTC Smart Trips program, allowing participants to receive reimbursement if they have an emergency during the work day and must find alternative transportation home.


The North Tahoe Community Alliance is proud to contribute to funding of the
North Lake Tahoe Workforce Vanpool through the TOT-TBID Dollars At Work Program.
