Palms West Hospital, in conjunction with Palm Tran, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for 12 new Palm Tran park-and-ride spots Wednesday, April 24. Commissioner Jess Santamaria and Palms West Hospital Chairman Dr. Carmine Priore were an integral part in the development of the parking spots. The goal of the project is to enhance the quality of life by making it easier for commuters who travel to and from the western communities. Commuters will now be able to park their cars in these spots, which have been allocated for the new limited-stop service on the Route 40 bus that runs from downtown West Palm Beach to the Glades communities.
