The PeopleforBikes ranking of cities' bicycle systems placed Spokane at 37th, noting the city had some ground to make up to ensure riders in all areas of the city had equal access to transit options.

A recent drop in driving is a sign that people were largely heeding Gov. Jay Inslee’s orders. But when people drive less, they buy less gas. And when people buy less gas, they pay less in gas taxes. And when people spend less in gas taxes, the coffers of the state Department of Transportation – not to mention those of local governments and the state Legislature – start running on empty.
Bus rapid transit in Spokane is no longer just a glimmer in the Spokane Transit Authority’s eye nor an idea pushed around on paper.
