LOCAL PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Local public transportation in the North Lake Tahoe and West Shore area is provided by TART and Night Rider. Bus stops are conveniently located at Homewood (for the North Lodge and West Shore Cafe) and Tahoe Ski Bowl Way (for the South Lodge). If you plan to take TART to work, please keep in mind that delays are very likely during and after snow storms and on holidays (e.g. July 4th weekend, Christmas, New Years, etc). We highly suggest taking an earlier TART ride when delays are expected.
The Tahoe Area Regional Transit, or TART, provides public transportation in the North Lake Tahoe area. Homewood Mountain Resort/West Shore Café will provide you with a bus pass free of charge. Bus passes are to be used for work purposes only and are issued as early as your first day of work and are available in the Human Resources office.
TART also provides free night service called the Night Rider. The Night Rider stops at all TART stops with a few additional stops. The Night Rider typically runs from 6:00PM to Midnight. Current Night Rider schedule is available online. Please note, the schedule posted online at the moment might not reflect the upcoming season.
