North Lake Tahoe Water Shuttle begins Friday

150 passenger TTD dream boat
The Tahoe Transportation District’s (TTD) quest for a “fleet” of ferry boats linking north and south shores will begin this week on the north shore.  The route is limited and you have to make reservations.

Service will begin with a 30 foot boat that can carry 12 passengers and 8 bicycles. There will be two routes: North shore to/from Tahoe City, and West shore to/from Tahoe City.
Adult one-way tickets are $10 dollars, kids under 13 are $7 dollars. Bikes ride free.
·         Tahoe City Marina
·         West Shore CafĂ© in Homewood
·         Gar Woods in Carnelian Bay
·         Tahoe Vista Recreation Area

This water shuttle service is a pilot project for TTD.  If things go well, TTD hopes to have several large boats zipping across the lake by 2015.
