Spokane Transit Authority Northwest Garage (NW Garage)
Spokane Transit Authority (STA) has identified a need to increase the amount of space for the storage and maintenance of buses and paratransit vehicles. The current garage and maintenance facility located at 1230 West Boone and STA’s surface parking areas are at capacity which creates difficulty when moving or servicing vehicles due to the lack of space to maneuver and store vehicles. The new maintenance and storage facility will be designed to relocate a portion of vehicles and maintenance operations and relieve capacity conflicts at existing facilities.
STA will be constructing a 68,772 square foot garage and maintenance facility located at the 1224 to 1400 block of N Cedar Street, the 1200 to 1300 Block of Sinto Ave, and the 1300 block of Sharp Ave. Spokane, WA 99201. The garage and maintenance facility will also include employee parking, a fuel storage tank and a back-up generator.
STA has issued a SEPA (State Environmental Policy Act) Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) for the garage and maintenance facility. You can view the SEPA checklist and DNS below.
