Bus Stop Improvement Project

Photo courtesy of the Transit 509 blog.
Does this picture look familiar? Some would say no, because the sidewalk is actually somewhat shoveled near the bus stop. In many areas, bus stops aren't easy to get to in winter when walks either aren't shoveled or used to store snow that is plowed up.

Spokane Transit is working on a project to address ongoing issues surrounding bus stop access, signs and poles, shelters, benches and other bus stop features.  As well as the need for better defined standards, policies and coordination with partner jurisdictions in these areas.  

If you would like a presentation and an opportunity to provide feedback on the project at your neighborhood meeting please contact Kathleen Weinand at kweinand@spokanetransity.com or 509-325-6055.
