El Dorado Transit Set To Open Bass Lake Rd Park & Ride Lot With Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on July 8th

100 Space Park & Ride Lot Required As Condition of Approval of the 90 home Bass Lake North project.

El Dorado Transit has scheduled a ribbon cutting ceremony for July 8th at 10am to celebrate the opening of the 100 parking space Bass Lake Road Park & Ride, located at the south west corner of Bass Lake Road-Country Club Dr intersection, on Old Bass Lake Road.

The park & ride lot will officially open for service on Monday July 15th. All commuter stops at Cambridge Park & Ride will move to Bass Lake Road Park & Ride.

The park & ride lot was an element of the 1996/2016 Bass Lake Hills Specific Plan. The entitlements granted to the 2017 approved 90 home Bass Lake North residential project in the Bass Lake Hills Specific Plan required as a condition of approval the construction of the first 100 parking spaces of what was intended to eventually be a 200 parking space facility. The Bass Lake North project is now known as the Toll Brothers’ Hidden Ridge development.

The park & ride lot is expected to be used for carpool and vanpool riders, as well as for El Dorado Transit’s Sacramento Commuter Service. It is expected to lessen the demand at the Town Center Park & Ride lot in El Dorado Hills, which is over-impacted.

The park & ride lot is also available for parking to access the future trail system in the Bass Lake Hills Specific Plan area, with connectivity to trails in the Serrano area, as well as bike trails east into Cameron Park.

It is expected that the El Dorado County Household Hazardous Waste collection events that have been held at El Dorado Hills Fire Station 86 on Bass Lake Road will now be conducted at the Bass Lake Road Park and Ride facility.
