In an effort to reduce traffic on the South Shore and provide alternative transportation options, Chariot Transit will introduce two passenger vans to Tahoe in the next month.
Marissa Fox, the legal and policy director at the League to Save Lake Tahoe, announced Chariot’s arrival this past week. The League spearheads a sub-committee to develop public-private partnerships, which is part of a bi-state committee that has existed since last September.
Chariot is a private transit business that mimics public transportation on a smaller scale, but provides some of the flexibility of ride services like Uber. Its vehicles can hold up to 14 people and riders can reserve their seat and make payments through the Chariot app.
