North Lake Tahoe Express

our story.

A seamless transit experience to help reduce private-car use in the Truckee/North-Tahoe region.

North Lake Tahoe Express offers affordable, daily VIP airport service from 6:00 am until 11:45 pm to/from the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee regions and Reno/Tahoe International Airport. Our goal is to make our shuttle so simple to book and easy to use that it?s your first choice for airport transportation.


Less private car use for fewer vehicle miles traveled will help preserve our area?s renowned environment. The usual 1 to 1.5 hour trip, depending on stop location, also gives you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the spectacular natural beauty surrounding you. And it?s convenient and quick to book online ? four easy steps and a few minutes ? or by phone at (833) 709-8080 (required for reservations within 24 hours of desired departure).


At the airport, North Lake Tahoe Express is located in the baggage claim area behind the rental car counters and between doors A and B. For information on departure times and stops in North Lake Tahoe-Truckee, visit Routes and Schedules.

The North Lake Tahoe Express represents one of the largest and most high-profile public-private collaborations in the region. A multi-jurisdictional, multi-sector partnership has been essential to the success of the service. We would like to thank the following funding partners for their continual efforts: North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, Placer County, Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitors Bureau, Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Biltmore Lodge & Casino, Town of Truckee, and the Truckee-Tahoe Airport District. The Washoe County Board of Commissioners provided a one-time contribution to help start the Blue Route, serving Incline Village and Crystal Bay.
