Council To Vote On STA Plan Tonight

Spokane's City Council will be asked to vote tonight on a plan to build a trolley bus line in downtown Spokane. The Spokane Transit Authority board unanimously approved moving forward with the plan, but now City Council gets a shot at it.

The electric trolley bus would carry passengers from Browne's Addition through downtown to the University District. No design plans have been officially made and it would be several years before a trolley would become a reality as the project would cost approximately $36 Million.
