Shuttles and Taxis

For many portions of the Tahoe Rim Trail that do not have public transit, a taxi or private shuttle is the best bet to get to trailheads to avoid driving a personal vehicle and/or having to shuttle two private vehicles. Below is information on taxi and shuttle services.

RideSharing Services:

Lyft and Uber now operate around Tahoe, but currently are only able to pick up passengers in California. They can however, drop passengers off in both California and Nevada. LTE/3G coverage is required to use these ridesharing services.

Shuttle Services:

Wanna Ride™ provides point-to-point shuttle service to hikers and mountain bikers throughout the South Tahoe region. Do you want to hike or bike a one-way section of the Tahoe Rim Trail? Are you heading into Desolation Wilderness for a through-hike? You can park your vehicle at your planned exit point and have Wanna Ride™ pick you up there to take you to the trailhead at your starting point. Wanna Ride operates daily from 8 AM to 4 PM June through October. Arrangements can be made for shuttles outside of normal hours of operation with advance notice. Please visit or or call 775-790-6375 for information.

Flume Trail Bikes provides a fantastic shuttle service (and bike rentals) to Tahoe Meadows or Spooner Lake State Park from Tunnel Creek Cafe off Hwy 28 in Incline Village, NV. For more information visit:
