In addition to local revenue, Spokane Transit will fund the STA Moving Forward plan in three other ways.

Funding from other sources includes:

Competitive state and federal grants

STA anticipates being awarded an additional $94.9 million in competitive state and federal grants.

Increased revenue from more riders using STA’s services

With a 25% increase in service throughout the region, ridership is expected to increase by 30% which will generate additional revenue to be used to implement service.

Planned fare increases

Planned fare increases will also provide additional revenue from STA riders.
