Proposed Amendment Would Change Two STA Projects

A proposed amendment to the 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) would increase the cost of Spokane Transit Authority’s (STA’s) proposed West Plains Transit Center and provide funds for projects that benefit seniors and people with disabilities who have transportation disadvantages. The Spokane Regional Transportation Council (SRTC) is looking for input from the public on this suggested amendment.

The TIP is a document that identifies projects programmed to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds).

The TIP is amended regularly as SRTC’s member jurisdictions have projects to add, change or remove from the Program. The latest proposed amendment is below. Click the picture to view it full size. Details can also be viewed on the SRTC website at  

A public comment period for the amendment starts today, June 25, 2015. All comments must be received by 4 p.m. on Monday, July 6, 2015. Comments can be submitted by emailing to, mailed to SRTC at 221 W. 1st Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA, or by calling (509) 343-6370.
