State eyeing commuter options for Reno-Sparks area

State transportation officials are shifting away from highway construction and instead pushing for more environmentally-friendly ways for people to get to work. They’re eyeing an expansion of car pooling and bus routes for the tens of thousands of people in the Reno-Sparks area. The area is expecting double-digit growth in its workforce over the next two decades, in big part thanks to Tesla Motors and Switch bringing new employment opportunities.
