STA Looking For Public Input on West Plains Transit Center

A visualization of a West Plains Transit Center.
One of the main components of Spokane Transit's "Moving Forward" plan is a West Plains transit
center at the Highway 902 exit along Interstate 90. This center would have 100 parking spots and better connections to locations in the West Plains.

STA is hosting a public meeting to get input from the public on how this could affect traffic in the area. It is 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24 at the Irv Reed Event Center on McFarlane Road next to the economy parking lot at Spokane International Airport.

The Spokesman-Review has more on the services a West Plains Transit Center would provide.
