INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (AP) — The second season of a shuttle bus operation intended to ease traffic congestion on Lake Tahoe's north shore proved to be even more successful than the first.

Officials for the Tahoe Transportation District hope that means they'll be able to come up with funding to continue the two-year pilot project next summer between Incline Village and Sand Harbor State Park.

More than 14,000 passengers boarded the East Shore Express this summer, a 21 percent increase from last year.

District transit manager Curtis Garner tells the Sierra Sun it's especially impressive because ridership was down nearly two-thirds the final three weeks of operation as visitation dropped off due to smoke from the big wildfire near Yosemite National Park.
