Kaltran Buses New Logo

Kaltran is a public transportation service, and everyone is welcome to ride! Our fleet consists of large and mid-size passenger buses, vans, and cars. All vehicles are ADA compliant with lifts/ramps for wheelchairs. Kaltran receives funding through grants from the Federal Transit Administration, the Washington State Department of Transportation, and generous contributions from local agencies and organizations. Kaltran enhances the economic and social well being of the Kalispel Tribal people and surrounding community through the delivery of safe, reliable, efficient and friendly transportation services.

Routes Ending May 18, 2019

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, Kaltran will be ending its transportation services for the following routes: 

  • Spokane Commuter
  • Spokane mid-day
  • Ione
  • Newport
  • Chewelah, and 
  • On-demand transportation services. 

Kaltran will continue to provide Medicaid transportation services without interruption.

We are committed to ensuring passengers are aware of the decision and have time to make alternative transportation arrangements. Rural public transit has been an ever-changing landscape over the years with grant funding becoming scarcer and highly competitive. We appreciate the support that our passengers have provided and feel the time is right to take a new direction.

Tribal leadership is working to provide other employment opportunities for Kaltran team members and appreciates the years of service and dedication the drivers have provided.
