Workforce Transportation Roundtable

February 22, 2023 | Linda Offerdahl

Business leaders and employers are meeting with transportation officials on March 9 to discuss commuter needs and possible solutions. The high cost of gas, coupled with the lack of local workforce housing has led to a chronic shortage of workers in Washoe Tahoe, indeed within the Tahoe Basin. Last summer, a committee organized by the Washoe Tahoe Housing Partnership, conducted a workforce transportation survey. It led to the use of Regional Transit Commission VanPools at the Hyatt Lake Tahoe, under the leadership of Michael Murphy, General Manager of the Hyatt.  Additional VanPools are a possible solution for other employers. However, longer term solutions are needed to address the needs of business owners of all sizes and their employees. 

Officials from the Regional Transportation Commission, the Tahoe Transportation District, TNT/TMA, Placer County, Washoe County, and Travel North Tahoe Nevada will be present.

Business leaders and employers are invited to attend. Not an IVCBA Member? Join here. Lunch is sponsored by Menath Insurance and Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe.  Please register in advance.
