2021-2022 Service Revisions
Big improvements are coming to transit in Spokane and we want your input!
In fall 2016, voters approved funding for STA Moving Forward, Spokane Transit’s 10-year plan for more and better transit. Many projects have already been completed, including expanded night and weekend service, the opening of the West Plains Transit Center and the start of six new routes.
STA is now considering route improvements in three focus areas: Northeast Spokane, Airway Heights/Spokane Airport/Fairchild Air Force Base and Greater Spokane Valley. The potential improvements, including changes to the paratransit boundary, are described in more detail in the Preliminary Proposal report:
These service improvements are concepts at this time. The preferred option may contain a combination of recommendations from multiple concepts rather than a single concept in its entirety.
An online survey seeking feedback on the Preliminary Proposal has closed and STA is reviewing the results.
Based on public input and additional analysis, STA will develop a draft recommendation for service improvements. A follow-up survey will then be distributed to get feedback on the draft recommendation. The STA Board of Directors will hold a public hearing on the draft recommendation in July 2020. STA will make a decision on the improvements in October 2020, and route changes will go into effect in two phases in 2021 and 2022.
