Free Shuttle Bus from the Train to the Airport

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Things are about to get easier for passengers trying to get from West Palm Beach’s Tri-Rail station to Palm Beach International Airport.

Starting Friday, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority will start offering a free shuttle between the two.

The first shuttle will leave the station on Tamarind Avenue at 5:35 a.m. and will run until about 9 p.m.  The 10 minute shuttle comes and goes in 25-minute intervals.

RTA says the service will run for two years.  If all goes well and people use the service, they’ll make it permanent.

Similar services are offered at Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Checking local taxi rates, this new service could save you at least $12 each way.

note: you can always park your car free at the train station and take the bus to the airport where parking is not free
