Spokane Light Rail Project
The idea of light rail in Spokane came up in 1985, but never mterialized. In mid 2002, the Spokane Transit Authority again began discussing several types of light rail options. Most prominent was a16 mile starter line between downtown Spokane and Liberty Lake. Extensions were also discussed for lines to the airport, North Spokane and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Studies indicate that ridership would be low, and federal funds for the project were unlikely. In 2006, all light rail plans were shelved. Or perhaps burned. as yet the dust continues to cover the reports.
