No plans tonight? How about attending a public hearing on the preferred alternative for high performance transit in central Spokane? The Spokane Transit Board of Directors will ask for public testimony on the topic tonight at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at the City of Spokane, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
The Central City Alternatives Analysis study evaluated various methods of public transit and corridor options to serve downtown and adjacent neighborhoods with the goals to increase transit ridership and system connectivity. Stakeholders have agreed on a recommendation for High Performance Transit (HPT) using Modern Electric Trolley (MET) vehicles on a general alignment extending from Browne’s Addition to Gonzaga University via downtown Spokane and the WSU-Spokane Campus at Riverpoint. Love the idea? Then show up and testify! Not so sure and have questions? Show up and get some answers.
