Sand Harbor shuttle begins Saturday
June 14, 2013
The East Shore Express, a pilot park and ride bus that runs from Incline Village to Sand Harbor, will open for its second season this Saturday.
According to the Tahoe Transportation District, buses will operate Saturday and Sunday and June 22-23, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Daily operations begin June 29, through Sept. 2, with service from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., running every 20 minutes on weekends. Hours of operation on the Fourth of July are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Round-trip fare is $3 per person and $1.50 for children 12 and under, seniors and disabled passengers. Fares include admission to Sand Harbor.
The service uses a dedicated entrance to minimize traffic-related delays and drops passengers at the Visitor's Center near the main beach. Parking inside Sand Harbor is $10 per vehicle for Nevada residents, and $12 for out-of-state motorists.
The express loops from the old Incline K-2 Elementary School on the corner of Highway 28 and Southwood Boulevard to Sand Harbor.
