Blackjack cab South Lake Tahoe
If you want to come to Tahoe South from out of the area and don't want to drive or rent a car, that's very easy to do. Here's how:
From the Reno Tahoe International Airport, there is a comfortable bus, South Tahoe Express, that goes directly from the airport right to us here at Lakeside Inn. The South Tahoe Express has multiple daily departures from the airport. The one-way scenic ride costs about $30 per adult and about $17 for children aged 4 - 12 (discounts available for a round-trip ticket).

Once you are here and checked into your room, getting around town is easy. The Tahoe Transportation District has shuttle buses that go up Kingsbury Grade, down Highway 50, and even buses that go to Carson City. If the buses don't go close enough to where you want to go, there are plenty of cabs in town.

If you're in town to ski one of the nearby world-class ski resorts, there are complimentary shuttle buses that can take you to the slopes. Heavenly has frequent shuttle buses going to each of their four mountain access points: California Base Lodge, the gondola in the Heavenly Village, Boulder Lodge, and Stagecoach Lodge. Sierra-at-Tahoe's shuttle buses pick up guests at 7:30 am and 9:30 am every day of the season.

If you're here in the warmer months, getting around town by bike is a popular option. You can rent a bike from, Shoreline Adventure Center, located adjacent to us. South Lake Tahoe has had a tremendous improvement to its bike path network in recent years and has plans for even more improvements in the years to come. One new bike path, that literally starts across the street from us, meanders through a beautiful meadow and forest with the option to go to Nevada Beach or Round Hills Pines beach. At Round Hills Pines beach, there is a boat taxi that can deliver you to Camp Richardson and a few other stops on Tahoe's magnificent south shore.
