Kalispel Tribal Transit
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
KALTRAN is a public transportation service operated by the Kalispel Tribal Planning and Public Works Department under the Kalispel Tribal Business Council. All members of the general public are welcome to ride aboard the Kalispel Transit System (KALTRAN). The fleet consists of one 38-passenger buss, two 22-passenger buses, two 15-passenger vans, and a 7-passenger van. All KALTRAN vehicles are ADA compliant with lifts/ramps for wheelchairs. KALTRAN is currently funded through grants from the Federal Transit Administration, the Washington State Department of Transportation, and generous contributions from local agencies and organizations.
At KALTRAN our mission is to enhance 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.
KALTRAN provides fixed route service from the Tribal Wellness Center to North Spokane every day. Round trip service is also provided to Ione on Monday and Wednesdays. Deviated services are also available up to 3/4 of a mile off the normal fixed route, or within the boundaries of the Kalispel Indian Reservation. All deviated route services must be scheduled with the KALTRAN office prior to the requested pick-up time, so vehicles can be appropriately dispatched.
