Public Transits

Public transit services are available in each of our four counties connecting to various adjacent counties within WA and Idaho. PRTPO with a help from our Transit agencies, WSDOT and FTA is working towards finding various ways to fill in the gaps for transit services as a region and increase the regional access for areas that are inaccessible at this moment. PRTPO recently conducted a Human Service Transportation Coordination Plan (HSTCP) study in 2014 and will also be holding our final round of public participation meetings this Summer/fall 2015 to update the final report. Additionally, a routine two year public outreach meetings for a two year update is scheduled to be in Spring/ Fall of 2016. o Summary for Palouse RTPO HSTCP (Full report can be found in studies section of this website) PRTPO encourages all public to participate in our online surveys when available and make your voice heard to see the transit change that can benefit your needs.
