September 2017 STA Service Revisions

During the November 2016 General Election, Spokane area voters approved STA’s Proposition 1 to fund STA Moving Forward, a 10 year plan to maintain, improve and expand public transit throughout the region.  The first round of improvements will take effect this May with:

·         Later Saturday night service system-wide
·         New service on East Indiana and East Broadway in Spokane Valley
·         Improved weekend service on Wellesley Avenue
·         Improved weekend service to Airway Heights

Now STA is asking for your feedback about the next wave of system improvements scheduled for September 2017.  The September Preliminary Service Change Proposal includes:

     ·  Adding midday weekday trips on I-90 between Liberty Lake and downtowna
·         · Adding weekday morning and evening non-stop express service between Liberty
       Lake and downtown Spokane
·         · Add Sunday service to north Nevada Street
·         · Improve schedule reliability on Division Street and Sprague Avenue
·         · Improve passenger amenities on Division Street

STA developed three short surveys to help you weigh in on services impacting these areas.  You can find them here.
