The $10 sticker also assists Donner Summit residents with access on Old Highway 40 during winter road closures.The sticker program is permitted by the California Highway Patrol and Caltrans and administered by the Truckee North Tahoe Transportation Management Association.As more people choose to commute between Truckee-Tahoe and Reno, the Local Sticker Program becomes a more valuable tool, said Jan Colyer, executive director of the transportation association .
