STA ignores access

 

The Spokane Transit Authority has expensive electric trolleys “with a little bit of something for everybody” in its planned outline, but still persists in overlooking transportation access provisions to those most in need and their likely major source of frequent ridership.

Those who totally remain without personal cars and we disabled are therefore restricted from visiting all of our deceased loved one’s grave sites (at least on the minimum of once a year, on Memorial Day). Restore one route, to Holy Cross Cemetery, as a high-performance concept.

And which official decision-makers begin to even address the circumstance of removing bus stop benches for the incapacitated and “elderly,” tailored for their needs?

Does anyone wonder how such discrimination qualifies STA for federal grants?
