A growing number of residents and visitors in the Tahoe Basin continues to be a driving factor for transit projects in the region geared to get fewer vehicles on the road.

“While we can all handle a lot of people, we can’t handle a lot of vehicles and that’s our issue,” Tahoe Transportation District Manager Carl Hasty said at Tuesday’s Truckee Town Council meeting.

The district is currently looking to expand and improve the transit system over the next 20 years to alleviate issues that come with more vehicles on the road. However, a large funding gap still exists for desired projects.
