East Shore Express/Route 28

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.
