Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Service
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Holiday Service will start two hours early on Monday, January 17, 2022. Spokane Transit (STA) implemented this holiday schedule adjustment to make service more convenient for those commuters working on this federal holiday.
As a reminder, federal law requires that all transit passengers wear appropriate, properly fitting masks while on board buses and at transit facilities to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
Two simple steps to catch the early buses on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:
- Under the “Routes” tab, locate the earliest Sunday/Holiday departure time listed in your route’s schedule.
- Subtract two hours from that time to determine your departure time. **Routes with 30-minute service will have four extra trips, and routes with hourly service will have two extra trips.
Example A: If the route is every 30 minutes and the printed departure time is 7:49 am, the bus will come at 5:49 am, 6:19 am, 6:49 am and 7:19 am before resuming regularly scheduled holiday service.
