The 1980s Called, It Wants It's Bus Stop Signs Back

Admittedly, change is hard for me. The changeout of Spokane Transit bus stop signs is one I can live with though.

STA is starting work on replacing all the old bus stop signs with ones with a new look. Apparently it's been three decades (!) since the signs have undergone a change.

Zachary Ziegler of the Transit509 blog takes a look at local bus stops over the years, even before STA existed, and the history of transit in the area in general. I never thought bus stop signs would be this interesting but they are!
