Hi! I have been staying in one of your stays in Fisherman’s Wharf since a month now. Thanks to your city blogs and guides, I have managed to see most of SFO and get a whiff of the city. But a few colleagues here suggested me to take a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe. Can you suggest as to what mode of transport is available for me to get to Lake Tahoe? Is there a train that goes or should I rent a car?
Best Answer1Dear Terry,
Thank you for using our Forum.We recommend taking Amtrak, not Greyhound. From SFO, take BART (http://www.bart.gov) to Richmond Station. Transfer there to an Amtrak train. Only one Amtrak train per day runs directly to Truckee. For the other trips, you will have to make a timed transfer to an Amtrak bus in Sacramento. See http://www.amtrak.com for schedules and tickets. Once you are in Truckee, you will need to take a bus or shuttle to the resort.
