    Spokane
    LRT planned

    As of mid 2002, the Spokane Transit Authority is discussing several types of LRT. Most prominent is a 16 mile starter line between downtown Spokane and Liberty Lake. Extensions are also being discussed for lines to the airport, North Spokane and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. More recent studies indicate that ridership would be low, and federal funds for the project are unlikely.
