The Dirt: Spokane Community College building $5 million transit center
A bigger, relocated transit center is coming to the campus of Spokane Community College, according to permits issued by the city.
The $5 million project will construct the eastern terminus for Spokane Transit Authority’s Central City Line, a bus rapid transit route that recently received $53.4 million from the federal government and will begin operating in 2021. The transit hub will continue serving multiple other routes to Spokane Valley, Millwood and other parts of the city of Spokane.
The relocation of the transit center, from its current spot facing Greene Street to one along Mission Avenue, is also related to construction of the North Spokane Corridor, the $1.5 billion freeway that will be elevated over the community college’s parking lot adjacent to Greene.
