The second floor of the dowtown Spokane Transit Authority Plaza may be getting a new use. After a consultant study and a lot of opinions from the public as to what to do with the little-used space, it’s now being looked at for exhibit space for the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture.
STA Plaza Could House Museum Exhibits

Well I hope they do get the MAC to display at the Plaza, I seldom get to wander through the MAC now so a central location would be good for me.
Reading the online comments the people there think that is a very bad idea, and they want the Plaza torn down or moved to the train station. I remember standing in front of the SeaFirst Building (now Bank of America building) freezing as the snow swirled waiting for my bus, so I hope they never close the Plaza
I remember those days too Charles, and how the buses caused kind of a problem stopping at downtown locations to pick people up before there was one central location. At this point, I believe all the studies have shown there's no benefit in moving it out of downtown. No one would use it as the services are downtown. Also, the train station doesn't have the capacity for more buses, with already accomodating Greyhound buses. It's already a mess here a lot of days with too many buses, passengers, etc. And again, too far on the outskirts of downtown.
