RENO, Nev. — The Regional Transportation Commission will launch weekend bus service between Reno and Lake Tahoe’s Sand Harbor State Park this summer.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the bus service will start May 23 and last through Labor Day.
One-way fares will be $5 for adults and $2.50 for youths, seniors and the disabled.
A bus will depart Reno’s Meadowood Mall at 8 a.m., stop at the Summit Mall in south Reno and arrive at Sand Harbor at 9:30 a.m. Service will continue with a bus every three hours until the last departure from Sand Harbor at 6:30 p.m.
The three-year demonstration project will cost $55,000 per summer, with 95 percent covered by federal funds.
Members of the public requested the service, with supporters including youths who have never been to Lake Tahoe and seniors who haven’t been there for years.
