How long does it take to get to the airport from North Lake Tahoe and Truckee on the North Lake Tahoe Express Airport Shuttle?

Drive time between the North Lake Tahoe/Truckee area and the Reno Tahoe International Airport can take approximately an hour to an hour and a half, depending on how many other scheduled stop pick-ups there are.  We suggest a minimum of 3 hours between shuttle pick up time and flight departure time.  Riders should be aware that road conditions dictate the travel time and can frequently change.  Snow conditions in the winter and road construction in the summer can cause significant delays.

The shuttle pick up location at the Reno Tahoe International Airport is past the baggage claim area outside of door D.

For delayed flights, passengers will be moved to the next available shuttle time.  If there isn’t another time available, passengers will not be charged for the cancellation.

What is the difference between the scheduled stop and the door-to-door service?

The North Lake Tahoe Express offers a daily schedule with specific stop locations and times.  This is the “scheduled stop” service.  Door to door service is available to customers that request a ride outside of the scheduled stop times and locations.  For example, if a passenger needs a ride from a home within the “door to door” zone that is not one of the “scheduled stop” locations, they can pay an additional amount to be picked up at that location.
