Prepare for winter with a local sticker

Residents, employees and property owners of Truckee, North Lake Tahoe and Reno are eligible to purchase a “Local Sticker” that assists westbound access on Interstate 80 between Reno and Truckee-Tahoe during winter storm periods.

The sticker also assists Donner Summit residents with access on Old Highway 40 during winter road closures.

The Local Sticker Program is permitted by the California Highway Patrol and the California Department of Transportation and administered by the non-profit transportation partnership, 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,” TNT/TMA Executive Director Jennifer Merchant said.

“The windshield sticker eliminates shuffling through paperwork in your glove box to prove the residency CHP mandates to access Truckee-Tahoe during winter storms,” she said.

Available at the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce in Truckee, Lake Tahoe Incline Village/Crystal Bay Visitors Center in Incline Village and the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association Visitor Information Center in Tahoe City, stickers are $7 each.

They are valid for as long as you own the car and must be placed on the lower left-hand corner of the windshield.

To purchase a sticker, current California or Nevada vehicle registration showing a Truckee, Donner Summit, eastern Placer County or Washoe County address must be presented. Second homeowners may show a current property tax statement.

Reno residents may purchase a sticker by presenting current Nevada vehicle registration and a recent paycheck stub from a Truckee-North Tahoe area employer.

For additional program information, call the TNT/TMA at 581-3922.
