In 1978 Gary Neal Pierce moved from L.A. to Reno to start a new life, like most
of us he fell in love with the area & its unique style of living & then set out to find his niche in the community.
As a true entrepreneur will do, Pierce looked for a business need to fill. He noticed that only one tour bus company was in existence & that company closed down service in the winter months, so he started the Reno Tahoe Tour Company.
Pierce offered daily sightseeing tours going to Squaw Valley then around Lake Tahoe with lunch in South Tahoe & a stop in Virginia City on the way back to Reno.
He also started a scheduled bus service going to & from the Reno Airport & the downtown hotel/casinos, this was very successful until the hotels started FREE airport shuttles in 1988.
Reno Tahoe Tour Company was one of the first transportation companies to be issued a new license (MC 151690) under de-regulation of the Interstate Commerce Commission back in 1979. Gary Pierce has always offered quality service at good prices, starting back in 1981 & still gives that same great service today.
