Sta Offers Mall Buses

The Spokane Transit Authority now offers bus service to and from the Spokane Valley Mall through three routes.

A new route, No. 49, picks up shoppers at two stops on Sprague Avenue and drops them off in front of the Bon Marche store at the mall. Riders can catch the No. 49 on Sprague at Sullivan or Progress. Riders on routes No. 9, 21 and 22, which run along Sprague, 24th Ave. and 32nd Ave., can connect with No. 49 at these stops.

The No. 49 bus arrives at the mall every 20 minutes from about 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekdays and Saturday only.

The No. 9 route stops at the Valley Mall on evenings and Sundays only. It also stops in front of the Bon. The No. 9 arrives at the mall between about 6:30 and 9 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays, and between about 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sundays.

The No. 28 freeway express route stops at the Valley Mall at Tony Roma’s restaurant near the east entrance. The route travels from downtown to the Harvard Road park-and-ride, then back. The bus travels on I-90 from downtown to the Pines Road park-and-ride. It then travels along Indiana, stopping at several locations, including the mall. It proceeds on I-90 to the Sullivan Road park-and-ride and the Harvard Road park-and-ride, where it backtracks.

Bus signs along Indiana are now being installed. Until all signs are up, bus drivers will stop wherever riders stand on Indiana. Riders should wave to let the driver know they want to get on.

The No. 28 will arrive at the mall between about 5:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays only. , DataTimes
