Why Is This Important?
For people in the workforce, transportation to work is a key factor in one’s daily schedule and time allocation. The commuting needs of the workforce population help to determine the need and importance of a public transportation system. The seasonal tourism industry in the Tahoe/Truckee area increases the need for public transportation in order to provide for low paid seasonal employees and visitors. In addition, families without transportation are in need of a transit system that can be used for visits to health services, community services, educational opportunities and recreational activities.
