Funding for Spokane Transit's services is largely provided by a local sales tax levied within the Public Transportation Benefit Area only. By state law, the only legal means of public funding for transit agencies in Washington is through local sales and use tax of no more than 0.9%. Spokane Transit currently levies 0.6%. Voter approval is required before a tax can be levied.
If you are outside the area served by fixed route bus service, you can still take advantage of Spokane Transit. Sharing a ride to work and back is good for the environment and your pocketbook. Call (509) 326-POOL(7665) Vanpool matching and placement services. Find out more.
