    Shuttle service in Tahoe area?

    I was looking to see who does shuttle service in the Tahoe area? I did it on the Corral Trail but don't remember who it was, great times, I think was ~$40.

    Looks like Northstar is still closed so this is the next best thing.

    Thanks!

    Over the Edge and Wanna Bike are the two shuttle services Iím aware of in SLT.

    +1 for Over the Edge in S. Lake. They just announced recently they're opening their shuttles for the season. Just with a cap on the # of passengers (6 vs 10) to allow for empty seats/space between people.

    Over the Edge, Wannaride and Dirt Gypsy have all worked well for me.

    OTE is best for 'regularly' scheduled shuttles. Get there in the AM and they'll hook you up.
    Wannaride (south shore) and Dirt Gypsy (Truckee/north shore) need more advance notice.

    ^^ That was my first thought, too! But there is a "Wanna Ride" shuttle service. Kent at WattaBike doesn't do shuttles anymore.

    Shoreline Bikes in Stateline also does shuttles. And Flume in Incline Village. Not sure what any of their policies are to avoid people sitting together in a stuffy van.

    I did a shuttle with DirtGypsy last summer. Donner Rim trail down to Donner lake. Really fun and the guys were super awesome. Definitely a ride you can self shuttle which we did afterwords. I am not sure if anyone does shuttle rides on Corral or not.

    ^^ There's aren't any commercial shuttles for Corral because they can't enter national forest land. However, there is no shortage of private shuttles and e-bike self-shuttling.

    We used them last September for a couple rides. Super nice people. They even came and saved our A$$ when we got caught in a freak, unpredicted snowstorm.

    We had a really good experience with Dirt Gypsy shuttles last year up in Truckee. Shuttled DLRT and Big Chief on back to back days. They were super accommodating with scheduling, highly recommend.

    Used Flume several times. Good folks and the deli/beer at the bottom is a bonus

    There's also Tahoe Mountain Guides in Truckee.
