Spokane Transit schedules service changes three times a year in order to keep the region’s transit system as convenient, accessible and efficient as possible. Some changes are projects funded as a part of the STA Moving Forward plan to maintain, improve and expand public transit. Other improvements are implemented based on customer and driver input and are designed to improve your transit experience.
