Experience a New Level of Transit
Introducing City Line — Spokane’s first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route.
City Line combines frequency and efficiency in a modern streetcar-like experience. The six-mile route between Spokane’s historic Browne’s Addition and Spokane Community College will connect through downtown and the University District, including Gonzaga University.
Updates on station construction can be found on the City Line Construction site.
Buses every 7.5 minutes during peak hours, with over 1,000,000 rides projected annually.
Quiet Buses, Clean Air
The City Line fleet will feature all-electric, state-of-the-art zero-emission vehicle technology.
City Line’s economic impact will bring an estimated $175 million into the Spokane region over twenty years.
Near-level boarding, off-board ticketing, real-time signage and distinctively-branded buses and boarding stations.
City Line’s 60-foot buses will help mitigate traffic congestion and reduce expensive wear and tear on city roads.
