What's the best way to get from South Lake Tahoe to San Fran

We are travelling in Janaury, looking at the flying, there seems to be no direct flights. Can anyone recommend other forms of transport.

Thanks

Most people will drive, as public transit is not generally convenient over long distances. There is Amtrak service (bus from Tahoe to Sacramento, train from Sacramento to Emeryville, bus from Emeryville to San Francisco). It's all timed transfers, but you still have to cart your luggage around.

There are some ski buses that "may" sell a one-way ticket. If you really don't want to drive yourselves, and don't mind being on something of a party bus, check out www.bayareaskibus.com/

There are flights from Reno to SFO but they may be expensive. The Amtrak ride is Loooong and great if you have plenty of time on your vacation. I would suggest driving or the bus that Susan mentions

Here's another ski shuttle that has a one way ride from South Tahoe resorts to San Francisco for $36 per person:

Thank you for all your recommendations, shall try the bus services.

As flights from Reno to San Francisco, are quite expensive.

Thanks
