From Chico to Incline Village

Hi, I'm from Brazil and I would love some great advices about transportation from Chico, CA to Incline Village, NV on october 12th.

I know that car rentals are good, but its too pricy for a only travel passenger.

So I though about amtrak train, but it says no checked baggage (im travelling with a 50lbs baggage) and I dont know about buses fares or other options.

Could u give some help?!

Thanks a lot!

Regarding Amtrak

https://www.amtrak.com/servlet/ContentServer…

The reason you cannot check luggage is that it is a platform stop only.

This just means when the Amtrak train stops, they will open the train doors.

The staff will greet you at the door.

You (or they can assist) to put your luggage on the luggage racks in your train car.

They have luggage tacks on the lower level train carss.

Many do so. Its safe to do so.

You just take them off the luggage from the train where you get to where you are going.

It sounds like your weight of your luggage is around the 50 lbs. They will NOT weigh the bags. So it sounds like you are fine there.

You will need to take the train from Chico to Sacramento, then take the train to Truckee

From Truckee take the bus to Incline Village

If the timing of the train is not good for you, Amtrak has bus service from Chico to Sacramento.

Look at the schedules of Chico to Truckee (since there is not service to Incline Village.)

Then take the local bus indicated above.

I would also ask on the Chico forum if they know of other local bus service,.
