Car-free commute day at Lake Tahoe for TRPA

Staff Reports

STATELINE, Nev. – Friday will be car-free commute day at Lake Tahoe. More than 60 staff members of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and neighboring offices are biking, walking or using alternative transportation to get to work that day.

The event originally was scheduled for Wednesday, but TRPA officials pushed it back two days to coincide with the end of the Tahoe Bike Challenge.

TRPA spokesman Jeff Cowen says it’s all part of an effort to promote multi-modal transportation at the lake. He says they are putting up signs at agency headquarters in Stateline that read “Yes, We’re Open” in case anybody gets the wrong idea from the empty parking lot.
