Bus Travel

The county's bus service, Palm Tran, runs two routes (Nos. 44 and 40) that offer daily service connecting the airport, the Tri-Rail stop near it, and locations in central West Palm Beach. A network of 34 routes joins towns all across the area; it's $5 for a day pass. The free Downtown Trolley connects the West Palm Beach Amtrak station and the Tri-Rail stop in West Palm on its Green Line. Its Yellow Line makes continuous loops down Clematis Street, the city's main stretch of restaurants and watering holes interspersed with stores, and through CityPlace, a shopping-dining-theater district, and to the Kravis Center. Hop on and off at any of the stops. The trolley’s Yellow Line runs Sunday to Wednesday 11–9 and Thursday to Saturday 11–11. The trolley’s Green Line, which stretches farther east, west, and south, and connects to Tri-Rail and Amtrak, runs weekdays 7–7, Saturday 9–7, and Sunday 11–7. A seasonal Blue Line, operating from fall to spring, runs from downtown West Palm Beach to Northwood Village, and the Palm Beach Outlets mall. Times are Thursday–Saturday, 11–10.
