Speakers will include Jaime Wright, executive director of the Truckee North Tahoe Transportation Management Association; Will Garner, transit manager for Placer County; and Peter Kratz, deputy director, Placer County Department of Public Works.

“Minimizing the amount of miles traveled in cars helps preserve the environment and saves drivers time and money,” according to the chamber. “Learn more about the newly approved Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transit (TART) Systems Plan Update within Placer County. This plan formalizes many of the recommendations from local government partners, transit advocacy groups and business leaders who hope to develop a world-class transit system for residents and visitors while minimizing the transportation effects of development projects in the region.”
