Shuttle to Sacramento considered by TDVA

Could South Lake Tahoe/Stateline tourism benefit from a luxury motor coach service to and from Sacramento?

That is the question the Tahoe-Douglas Visitors Authority Board of Directors would like answered by a proposed $30,000 study.

But first, the board must consider another question: Is the possible benefit of the information worth the cost?

On Wednesday, the board will consider the cost and benefits during its monthly meeting which begins at 6 p.m. at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.

The proposed coach would operate similar to the Tahoe Casino Express, operated by the Lake Tahoe Gaming Alliance. It travels several times a day to and from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and the Stateline casino corridor. In 1998, about 145,153 passengers used the service.

“We’re not suggesting the TDVA would pay for such a service,” said Steve Teshara, TDVA spokesman. “There are those who believe it’s needed. The existing partners of the Tahoe Casino Express and some others are extremely interested, but before they put up the dollars they would like to document the need.”

The board will also discuss the efforts to find a name sponsor, or several smaller sponsors, to keep the Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe for 2000 and beyond.

For more information, call the TDVA at (775) 586-0047.
