BlueGO announces new fare structure, more Carson Valley service
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – South Shore bus passengers will be able to use an expanded bus service from the Gardnerville Ranchos to Carson City beginning Monday, according to a Friday statement from the Tahoe Transportation District.
Routes begin operation at 6:20 a.m. with the last run starting at 5:15 p.m., five days a week. Fares are $4 for intercity trips and $2 within the local areas with half-price fares offered to youth, seniors and those with disabilities.
Transfer stations are located at Tillman and Kimmerling in Gardnerville, and in Carson City at Washington and Plaza Streets in Carson City.
A new fare structure will also be put in place this weekend, according to the statement.
“The new fare and route structure allows BlueGO to hold the line on bus fares without major price increases on its main routes and enables the transportation system to operate in a positive and sustainable manner,” according to the statement.
The revised route structure will be evaluated throughout October. Any possible improvements will be made and new rider guides distributed by mid-November. The finalized schedules will go into effect after the Thanksgiving holiday.
