BAY AREA and CENTRAL VALLEY: Tahoe Convoy conveniently stops at BART and Caltrain stations and Park and Ride lots. Free weekend parking is available at all BART stations, and at the Fairfield and the Sacramento – Natomas stops.
The first eastbound Tahoe Convoy pickup is San Francisco SOMA at 4th/King Caltrain, on Friday at 5:45 PM. For passengers coming from the Peninsula, board northbound Caltrain Baby Bullet #365 and transfer onto Tahoe Convoy at 4th/King.
NORTH LAKE TAHOE: Tahoe Convoy takes passengers to North Tahoe's towns and ski resorts, and all points in between. Use a ridehail or taxi for the last-mile connection to your final destination. Not all Tahoe stops have weather protection (as indicated on the map), so when inclement weather is forecast, considering boarding at a sheltered location.
The last westbound bus dropoff is Millbrae BART, to connect to the Peninsula. Tahoe Convoy strives to arrive before the final southbound Caltrain (at 10:04 PM), but the southbound Samtrans ECR bus operates late into the night.
Tahoe Convoy connects the Bay Area to Lake Tahoe. Currently we serve North Lake Tahoe, but as ridership builds, service will expand per the Tahoe Convoy Vision, including a second route serving South Lake Tahoe.
Tahoe Convoy stops only where ticketed passengers are scheduled to board or alight. A typical trip makes 2 to 4 stops in the Bay Area and Central Valley, and 4 to 8 stops at Lake Tahoe.
Tahoe Convoy will never depart a pickup stop before the scheduled departure time, but arrivals and departures may occur later depending on the number of scheduled stops. On the Thursday before travel, ticketed passengers will be emailed an updated schedule listing the stops scheduled for that trip. Passengers may modify their pickup or dropoff location as late as 3:00 PM on the day of travel by letting us know.
To stay on schedule, Tahoe Convoy makes use of bus and carpool lanes. But traffic congestion, weather conditions, and other events beyond our control may result in extended travel times. On the day of travel, watch the Live Status page to track the shuttle in real time.
