Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Tahoe Transportation District do?

TTD facilitates, implements and delivers transportation projects in the Tahoe Basin. The District also provides operational authority for transit services within its boundaries, like Night Rider, the North Shore service that runs after TART hours on winter evenings.. Under this authority, TTD is currently managing BlueGo in South Lake Tahoe as well.

The District's responsibilities also include: providing transit vehicles to public transit operators, acting as the Consolidated Transportation Service Agency (CTSA) for the Tahoe Basin, implementing the rental car mitigation fee, managing grants from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and advising the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and Tahoe Metropolitan Planning Organization (TMPO) through the Tahoe Transportation Commission.

How is the Tahoe Transportation District organized?
The TTD was originally governed by a Board of Directors representing the counties within the Region and the City of South Lake Tahoe. Recognizing that transit is a public-private partnership, Article IX of The Compact was amended, by the states of California and Nevada in 1997, to provide for private sector representation on the Board. The Tahoe Basin’s transportation management associations, transit providers and representatives of any special transit districts (formed under California law) are now represented.

The Tahoe Transportation Commission (TTC) is a subcommittee of the TTD, established by the TRPA as an advisory liaison to both the TRPA and the TMPO. Intended to be a part of the planning process, the TTC provides technical input and recommendations on transportation issues, plans and programs to the TMPO and TRPA governing boards.

Who sits on the TTD Board of Directors?
One member appointed by each of the following: the Boards of Supervisors of El Dorado and Placer Counties, the City of South Lake Tahoe City Council, the Boards of County Commissioners of Douglas and Washoe Counties, the Carson City Board of Supervisors, the North Shore Transportation Management Association, and each local transportation district that is authorized by the State of Nevada or the State of California. A member at large, representing a public or private transportation system operating in the region, is also appointed by a majority of the other voting Directors. Representatives of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) sit on the Board as non-voting members. 

Who sits on the Tahoe Transportation Commission?
All of the voting members on the Tahoe Transportation District Board, plus representatives from the Washoe Tribe of California and Nevada, United States Forest Service and TRPA Advisory Planning Commission.
