The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is encouraging public review and feedback on key transportation plans to improve Lake Tahoe’s bicycle and pedestrian system and encourage public involvement in transportation improvements. The Active Transportation Plan focuses on connecting all methods of travel that do not rely entirely on a car, like walking, biking, and rolling.

Transportation impacts are the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions globally and a major source of nitrogen pollutants at Lake Tahoe. Excess nitrogen feeds the growth of algae and harms the lake’s famed clarity. Reducing vehicle use and improving safety in the Tahoe Basin is a top priority for TRPA, communities, and partner agencies, according to the agency.
