Free Trolley Service Connects Tri-Rail Passengers with Downtown WPB
A new free trolley is getting Tri-Rail riders to many of downtown West Palm Beach’s busiest employment centers. The Green Line stops at the West Palm Beach Tri-Rail station on Tamarind Avenue and carries passengers to Clematis Street, Dixie Highway and Okeechobee Boulevard. By transferring to the Yellow Line, passengers can access the Kravis Center, CityPlace and the downtown waterfront.
“This new service should prove to be of tremendous benefit to downtown businesses and employers,” said District 4 County Commissioner Steven L. Abrams, who is vice chair of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority Governing Board. “Any project that makes it easier for people to access employment opportunities is one that should be applauded. I regularly commute to West Palm Beach on Tri-Rail, and I plan to avail myself of the convenience the trolley will provide.”
The trolley will operate 7 days a week. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
This new service was made possible by a Job Access Reverse Commute (JARC) grant of $688,500, which will cover service costs for two years. The JARC program is sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration. For more information, please call Tri-Rail Customer Service at 1-800-TRI-RAIL (874-7245) or log onto www.tri-rail.com
