SmartRoutes Application Submitted


SRTC is teaming up with other area agencies to seek up to $50 million in grant money for transportation projects aimed at getting more people to walk or ride a bike rather than drive a vehicle.

SRTC and the Spokane Regional Health District yesterday submitted an application for the 'SmartRoutes' initiative, which could provide funding for projects that cater to non-motorized transportation. Click here to read the request for funding that was submitted.
