TART opens new facility

Placer County’s new Tahoe Area Regional Transit maintenance facility and Emergency Operations Center opened near Tahoe City.

The $3 million facility, located on Cabin Creek Road off Highway 89, takes the place of leased space on Lake Forest Road. The new facility is near the Eastern Regional Landfill.

This new building also includes space for the Placer County Office of Emergency Services to use as an Emergency Operations Center when there are problems. Multiple phone lines, radio gear and other equipment will make it easy to mount a regional emergency response when needed, such as regional flooding which occurred in January 1997.

TART buses provide service seven days a week year-round from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., with hourly service in both directions. The buses operate along the North Lake Tahoe shoreline and include a shuttle between Tahoe City and Truckee via Highway 89 several times daily. Schedules are posted online at http://www.placer.ca.gov/works or call 550-1212 or (800) 736-6365.
