A new bike share system will bring 170 bikes to West Palm Beach as part of Brightline's new suite of door-to-door mobility options.
West Palm Beach will soon offer residents and visitors a new mobility option as Brightline adds BrightBike to its suite of services, according to an article in Mass Transit. The new bike share system will feature 170 bikes at up to 17 stations and will be part of Brightline+, a "multimodal trip planning and booking experience that includes train service, local transit, and ridesharing."
Bikes will feature a rugged aluminum frame that is corrosion resistant with front and rear LED lights and front basket; helmets are strongly encouraged. Over the course of the program, electric bicycles will be added, and there will be opportunities for additional station locations.
According to city officials, the bikes will allow people to more easily connect to the Brightline train station and downtown destinations and reduce the number of car trips downtown. System membership also provides access to Miami's Citibikes.
