Palm Tran is now providing a convenient, affordable and easy way for Palm Beach State College students to access educational opportunities at the new Loxahatchee Groves campus at 15845 Southern Blvd.
This is the first fall term in which students will be able to access the campus via the new Palm Tran bus stop located north of Southern Blvd. between the Palm Beach State College campus and the Loxahatchee Groves Commons shopping center.
“Whether it’s getting to work, school or anywhere in Palm Beach County, Palm Tran is dedicated to providing safe, efficient and courteous service,” Palm Tran Executive Director Clinton B. Forbes said.
Route 40 began serving the new bus stop in Loxahatchee Groves in April 2017, and it has already been used by hundreds of students and shoppers to access the campus and nearby businesses, including Publix, Tropical Smoothie, Dunkin’ Donuts, 7-Eleven, Tractor Supply Co., Cricket Wireless and other retail shops.
The new bus stop also features a modern shelter that provides protection from the elements.
Palm Tran now serves PBSC’s campuses in Palm Beach Gardens, Boca Raton, Belle Glade, Lake Worth and Loxahatchee Groves.
“I’m pleased that Palm Tran has added this route for students attending our Loxahatchee Groves campus,” PBSC President Ava L. Parker said. “We established the campus to provide greater access to education and job training for residents in that area, and we don’t want lack of transportation to now stand in their way. This additional route closes the last gap for our college, and it’s great that Palm Tran made it happen before our fall term starts.”
