Downtown West Palm Beach Sky Bike bikeshare locations finalized

More transportation news out of West Palm Beach. The story here is about the new bike sharing program coming soon to West Palm. Also on the blog today is a story from Tony Doris at the Post on the surprising traffic numbers in the city: they're down.

If you've been paying attention to what's happening in West Palm Beach you see how they're preparing for big changes, All Aboard Florida is one. As West Palm gradually adapts to New Urbanism and concepts like 'Complete Streets' other cities in Palm Beach County will do the same. They'll have to; the public will demand it.

All Aboard Florida is a game changer. It's going to fundamentally shift how people think about where to live and work. The train hardly anyone is talking about is the Coastal Link which will begin construction after All Aboard Florida is operating.

There will be a Coastal Link station located in downtown Lake Worth (see map below). The next few years are going to be very exciting here in Palm Beach County. Probably not so much though if you're in the business of selling cars.
