1. Round Trip River Transportation
Truckee River Taxi can pick up your group and your gear at your house or hotel and bring you to the river with a return ride home when you are done...no parking, no traffic, no hassles. Just call or email us to set up in advance - it's surprisingly inexpensive and nobody from your group has to worry about driving. This is also a great option for people who plan to float with the commercial raft rental companies in Tahoe City, too.
OR 2. Morning Shuttle
You drive 1 car to the river, drop off your gear and your group at the launch area, drive to the bottom and park your car on the side of the road close to the River Ranch (but not in their parking lot). Truckee River Taxi will shuttle you to the top to rejoin your group. You'll be "floating back to your car." This is a great option for those of you with kayaks and paddleboards so you can unload them at the top and have your car on hand when you get to the bottom. Give us a ring in the morning and we'll be sure to have a van waiting for you in the River Ranch parking lot.
OR 3. Afternoon Shuttle
You drive 1 car to Tahoe City, park and launch. At the end of your float look for the blue Truckee River Taxi vans in the parking lot of the River Ranch by the patio exit. Your group can load up and get a ride back to your car. No reservations necessary, just look for the blue vans in the River Ranch parking lot.
