The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced a $53.4 million grant to the Spokane Transit Authority (STA) for the Central City Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.

The Central City BRT project is a 5.8-mile BRT service that extends from Browne’s Addition, a residential area and National Register Historic District located west of downtown Spokane, to an eastern terminus at Spokane Community College. The total project cost is $92.2 million with $53.4 million in funding requested through FTA’s Capital Investment Grants (CIG) Program.

Funding for the Central City BRT project is provided through FTA’s CIG Program, which provides funding for major transit infrastructure projects nationwide. Projects accepted into the program must go through a multi-year, multi-step process according to requirements in law to be eligible for consideration to receive program funds.
