Mountaineer is a free, on-demand shuttle servicing Palisades Tahoe.

Four Reasons to Use Mountaineer This Winter

  1. It's free. Seriously. There's no charge. Ever.
  2. It's convenient. With 7-minute average wait times and on-demand door-to-door service, it’s easy to get where you want to go.
  3. Safety first. Don’t want to drive in the snow? Planning to have drinks with dinner? Leave the driving to us.
  4. It's good for the environment. Shared rides mean fewer vehicles on the road. With more than 50% shared rides, Mountaineer greatly reduces cars on the road and vehicle miles traveled.
