Microtransit 2022: TBA Backcountry Shuttle

The onset of COVID and the subsequent increase in users at all trailheads has underscored the need to expand and pivot the TBA Backcountry Shuttle to help alleviate congestion at trailheads. Thanks to generous public support and a collaboration with Tahoe Sierra Transportation, TBA is pleased to announce the return of the free TBA Backcountry Shuttle for winter 2022! Stay tuned to Facebook and Instagram for updates. 

How it works

-The shuttle operates on a first come, first served basis during peak winter weekends. See the below list of shuttle dates and operating windows.

-Users contact Tahoe Sierra Transportation directly by phone at (530) 550-5300 and reserve the shuttle. You will be asked to provide the date, time and desired trailhead drop off and pick-up

-In order to secure this free service you will be asked to provide a credit card deposit in the amount of $250. Your card will not be charged unless you cancel within 12 hours of your reservation time.  

Tahoe Sierra Transportation will confirm and provide the contact information for your driver. Please be ready when your shuttle arrives!

-Go! Enjoy the ride and be sure to confirm your pickup plans with the driver.

-When you’ve finished your tour and are ready for pickup, contact your driver with the time and location to be picked up.

-BONUS! Whomever has the most shuttle ride at the end of the 2022 season will receive a gift card to a local ski shop!
