Alexander Dennis announced that it will supply Enviro500 double-deck buses to Spokane Transit Authority (STA) following an order for seven vehicles.

The Alexander Dennis Enviro500 will be the first double-deck transit bus in Spokane, Washington, and its surrounding urban areas.

They will serve Spokane Transit’s Cheney service, made up of two primary routes numbered 6 and 66. These link Eastern Washington University, the West Plains Transit Center which is a hub for connections to job sites in that area including a large Amazon Fulfillment Center, downtown Spokane, and the University District near downtown Spokane.

How STA Will Benefit from Bus Order

With a combined average weekday ridership of 1,900 daily boardings, the two routes will benefit from the Enviro500’s design which allows 84 seats to be fitted across the two floors while providing level boarding and easy access for all passengers including those using wheelchairs.

The buses will be built in the United States as part of the recently announced partnership between Alexander Dennis and Big Rig Manufacturing and are expected to be delivered in 2025. They will be supported in operation by Alexander Dennis’s own staff as well as through the wider NFI Parts organization.
