Northstar aims to minimize mayhem with Winter 2023/24 Parking Plan
Parking changes at Tahoe for lots of places this season
In the upcoming 2023/24 winter season, Northstar will be introducing a parking reservation system for weekends and peak periods. This initiative offers a multitude of advantages.
Firstly, it is expected to alleviate traffic congestion on Highway 267, while also encouraging carpooling and community transit usage. Furthermore, it will effectively address existing parking challenges and provide guests the assurance of a designated parking spot upon arrival, irrespective of their arrival time.
Additionally, this system will facilitate greater mobility solutions. The potential impact of reservations is substantial. By staggering guest arrival times, congestion on both Highway 267 and Northstar Drive will be significantly reduced.
According to GM and VP of Northstar, Amy Ohran, “We will see a significant change in circulation. We don’t have a capacity issue as much as we have a speed issue in finding park spots.”
Ultimately, the adoption of carpooling will diminish the frequency of needing off-site overflow parking.
Northstar’s parking reservation program offers a range of options to accommodate various needs. Vehicles with four or more occupants enjoy complimentary parking, though a reservation is still necessary and occupancy is confirmed upon arrival.
