The Future of Local Public Transit

Don't know much about High Capacity Transit so maybe you voted against it in last month's election? Well the topic isn't going away.

Spokane Transit has started an online forum to share ideas and feedback about the future of transit in Spokane. Topics will include where High Performance Transit is proposed, what it does, and even what it might look like. There are photos of transit from other cities, you can take short opinion surveys and give crucial feedback about the future of public transit.

For instance, right now, participants are being asked if the "look and feel" for Spokane's planned High Performance Transit (HPT) system be different than current buses, with some pictures and bus designs to give an idea of what may be available. It's cool to see what's out there and you could influence how our actual buses look in the future!
