Article IX of the Tahoe Regional Planning Compact created the Tahoe Transportation District (TTD). TTD has responsibility for implementing of transportation plans, programs and projects. TTD may acquire, own and operate public transportation systems and parking facilities serving the Tahoe Region and provide access to convenient transportation terminals outside of the Region.
The TTD also has the ability to receive specific tax revenue to support transit and transportation facilities. The TTD was originally governed by a Board of Directors representing the counties within the Region and the City of South Lake Tahoe. Article IX was amended by the states of California and Nevada in 1997 to provide for private sector representation on the Board, recognizing transit is a public-private partnership. Board membership now includes representation from the Basin's two Transportation Management Associations, an at-large member representing transit providers, and representative of any special transit districts formed under California law. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) each have non-voting members on the Board of Directors.
