Document Description
The proposed Lake Tahoe Passenger Ferry Project would provide direct waterborne transit service between the north and south shores of Lake Tahoe. The service is proposed to operate year-round and on a fixed schedule. Additionally, the service would coordinate with existing local transit services on the north and south shore. Implementation of the project would assist in achieving local, state, regional, and federal environmental and transportation goals by reducing dependency on the private automobile and environmental impacts associated with automobile use. Additional goals to improve mobility, connect communities, and enhance economic vitality would also be realized.
