After last year’s record of more than 500,000 riders, the downtown West Palm Beach’s trolley ridership is up another 20 percent. According to WPTV, that is a precursor to a retail boom in the downtown area.
The Downtown Development Authority estimates that 25 new business have entered downtown West Palm Beach this year, and 10 more could join them by year’s end.
And the increased retail will bring more employees to downtown West Palm Beach, which in turn could attract even more businesses. [WPTV]
