At the Washoe County Commissioners meeting June 8, 2021, the Commissioners approved extending the existing interlocal agreement with the Tahoe Transportation Distict (TTD) for construction of the East Shore Trail and associated parking areas through December 31, 2022. This action did NOT approve or release the funds for the purchase, planning, design or development of the Old Elementary School property as a TTD bus hub. The County funds can only be used as authorized within the existing agreement that includes projects related to the East Shore Trail.
Commissioner Hill has stated TTD is “still seeking matching funding from a variety of sources to finalize the grant” which would allow TTD to move forward with the purchase of the Old Elementary School property.
TDD’s East Shore Express has temporarily suspended operations from the Old Elementary School to Sand Harbor due to the lack of availability of drivers. Click here to read more https://www.tahoetransportation.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/2021-Press-Release-suspension-of-service.pdf.
