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.
