New trolley route in West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) Beginning in February, city officials in West Palm Beach will be launching a new trolley route that caters to local residents.

City leaders are using about two million dollars in federal grant money to add an additional trolley route downtown.  Plus, they'll be constructing bus stop shelters as well for the trolley stops.

Right now, people can catch a trolley traveling from CityPlace to Clematis Street.

The new route will travel from the downtown bus and train station, along Okeechobee, to places like Palm Beach Atlantic University and Phillips Point.  The new route will also connect to the current route and will include at least an additional five trolleys.

"It's for the person who comes to our city and works or the person who lives in our city and wants to go somewhere else on the train," said West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio.

The new route will operate seven days a week.  The hours include 7a.m.-6 p.m. Monday -Friday.  On Saturdays, trolleys will travel the new route from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and from 11a.m.-6 p.m. on Sundays.

"My dream is to have our trolleys go into the neighborhoods and be able to bring people from our neighborhoods into downtown," said the Mayor.
