  • Two different indicators provide information about travel mode choice in the Tahoe Basin. The first indicator is “Non-Auto Mode Share into the Basin".
  • This indicator shows what travel mode (air, car, bus, bike) people use to enter the Lake Tahoe Basin. This indicator is important because the choice of travel mode into the Basin influences how people travel around once they arrive. If visitors arrive by private vehicle, they will be more likely to drive within the Basin than to take transit, bike, or walk. Private vehicles were the highly dominant travel mode (97.8%) for people entering the Tahoe Basin in summer 2007.
  • The second indicator is “Non-Auto Mode Share within the Basin”. TRPA measures mode choice of residents through Census journey-to-work data, available every ten years, and through household travel surveys, generally conducted between Census surveys. Visitor (and resident) mode choice within the Basin is measured through the Tahoe mode share surveys described in “Percentage of Travel to Recreation Sites via Non-Auto Modes” and “Percentage of Travel to Commercial Core Areas via Non-Auto Modes”, below
  • Census and household travel data indicate that resident non-auto mode share has been holding steady around 18% over the last 15 years. For more information on visitor and resident mode shares, see the indicators below.
  • Though no quantitative goal has been developed for these indicators, a qualitative goal of an increase in the percentage of non-auto mode travel over time has been stated. Travel mode within the Basin is monitored whenever data sets are available (Census, household travel surveys). Travel mode into the Basin will be monitored every two years.
  • These survey reports are available on the TIIMS website, www.tiims.org.
