Solution to headache of Lake Tahoe traffic

The traffic in Lake Tahoe is a huge problem especially during the ski season.

Building another road or widening existing roads to Lake Tahoe would be cost prohibitive.

There is another method of transportation in existence — railroads — that could be used for snow trains and beach trains to Truckee and Reno. Local transportation to the hotels and to the ski resorts and beaches would also be required.

Trolleys such as the ones in San Diego, Washington, D.C., and other towns would give tourists a chance to see the beauty of Lake Tahoe without all the hassle of driving and finding a place to park.

This would have to be a joint effort between California, Nevada, Reno and Lake Tahoe.
