Govt. Offices Closed Monday & Buses On Holiday Schedule

A couple things you should know about next Monday, Feb. 20. It's President's Day so most government offices will be closed and Spokane Transit buses will run on a holiday schedule that day. That means some 'commuter routes,' such as the 174 to Mirabeau Park and Ride and Liberty Lake, won't run that day. Here's a link to the STA website so you can see what times your bus runs on Monday.

Here at SRTC, we take President's Day as a 'floating holiday,' meaning we can either take that day off or take a day off at a later date, so the office will be open. The City of Spokane will also be operating as normal, but it will be a parking meter holiday, so a good day to come downtown for shopping or to play in the park. The County will be closed, as will Spokane Valley.
