STA is excited to introduce the next service change which is the most extensive package of service enhancements in a decade.
The changes will provide better service in Northeast Spokane, service on both sides of I-90 between Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake, and expanded service on select routes. These changes deliver on many promises made in STA’s 10 year plan, STA Moving Forward (frequency and routing improvements for Hillyard, West Central, and Northeast Spokane), implements additional near-term improvements (service to Amazon Facility off Barker Road), and responds to public requests for transit enhancements throughout the region.
A full list of the coming changes, including new routes, more service, and better access, can be found here.
