Spokane — Streetcar Study

Rail Transit Online, July 2004

The Spokane Regional Transportation Council’s board of directors has awarded a $160,000 contract to URS Corp. for a feasibility study into a downtown streetcar system.  It would be modeled on the successful Portland Streetcar and would link Browne's Addition, the Riverpoint campus the hospitals on South Hill and the Arena, with a possible line to the West Central Neighborhood.  The study, which will be finished within a year, will examine potential ridership, routes, rolling stock, preliminary design, station locations, an operational plan and whether the streetcar could stimulate development.
