East Shore Express

Sand Harbor Shuttle

From Incline Village and Stateline, NV

Getting to one of Lake Tahoe’s most popular beaches is easy.

Operated by Tahoe Transportation District, the East Shore Express provides a convenient and affordable way to enjoy a day at Sand Harbor, without dealing with parking or traffic.

Choosing the East Shore Express also helps reduce congestion on parts of the State Route 28 corridor designated as a national scenic byway. Fewer cars mean better protection of our natural resources, plus improved bicyclist and pedestrian safety.

We Care About Your Safety! To better protect our visitors and our environment, drop offs and parking are no longer permitted along State Route 28 near Sand Harbor. Walk-In visitation is permanently suspended. Another great reason to choose the East Shore Express.

The low fare includes free entry into Sand Harbor, so hop aboard and enjoy the ride—and the value!
