STA Stuff

A reminder that Spokane Transit Authority's service changes go into effect this upcoming Sunday, Sept. 18. The Spokesman-Review had this article today on the changes taking place.

In the meantime, STA is being recognized by Human Transit, a public transit planning blog, for their new network map. Human Transit calls the map "one of the clearest I've ever seen" and "The legend, too, is both clear and wonkish at the same time." Hmmm... not sure how to take the wonkish part but it was meant it in a positive way so great. You can read the whole post and view the map (also below) here.
