What is Route Performance Maximization (RPM)?

Palm Tran's first overhaul of the entire network is projected to launch in the Fall of 2018.

Through input from the public, the Palm Tran Service Board and the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners, an improved bus network will be developed.  Prior to the implementation of any changes, Palm Tran will seek public input to hear from our customers.

The RPM is an effort to maximize service efficiencies to current and future customers.  Some routes will be adjusted to improve their coverage and efficiency.  Frequencies will also be adjusted on some routes.

Palm Tran will simplify our routes and make service more direct so the network will work better together to provide more connection to the destinations you need.
