[Excerpt from the Spokane Light Rail Website]: " 'The best way to predict the future is to invent it,' Alan Kay. Our community is growing and by 2025, we will have approximately 185,000 new neighbors in our region. In order to preserve and enhance our quality of life and position ourselves for increased economic growth, we are planning now for a future that will demand solutions. Our goal is to provide transportation choices with a seamless integrated system of light rail, bus rapid transit, streetcars, traditional bus service, bicycles, automobiles, and pedestrian friendly amenities. The system begins with an initial segment from downtown to Liberty Lake. The vision is to build a regional system, which will include a connection west to the Spokane International Airport/West Plains area, a connection to north Spokane using the north Spokane corridor and a connection east into Idaho to the City of Coeur d 'Alene."
