Ride of the Week: Dial-A-Ride Ford E-450 Superduty 17 passenger bus

Mostly within the Truckee town limits. People can go from Truckee to Kings Beach daily on a fixed route. There are ski shuttles that go to Northstar in the winter and trolleys that run in the summer.

Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Trolley runs hourly, with twelve round trips per day, seven days a week between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

We pick up about 40 to 50 people everyday. Monday through Friday.

Yes, if you have $4 you can ride. It is $1 for children, seniors and the disabled. You just have to call the day before (you need a ride.) No dogs unless they are guide dogs.

Seniors, disabled and employees at ski resorts. There are a lot of Hispanics and foreign workers who don’t have vehicles and rely on us to get to work.

The people. It’s challenging, keeping to the times is hard but the days go by quick.
