Advancing sustainability is largely about facilitating intermodal transportation, allowing users to walk, bike, drive, take public transit, and seamlessly transition between modes of transportation. It is also about encouraging fuel efficiency and alternative fuel vehicles. Below you find information about Delray Beach's FREE shuttle bus, and other public transit options, as well as alternative vehicles and charging stations.
Round About Trolley Shuttle
The City operates a free trolley that travels along Atlantic Avenue, between the Tri-Rail station, located off of Congress Avenue, and the City's beach. The trolley is a great way for visitors to access our downtown shopping, dining and entertainment, as well as an option for workers to commute to work or reach the County Court House and other civic institutions. You can hop and off at any of the designated stops.
Alternative Vehicle Information
Stand on Atlantic Avenue one afternoon and you will see all types of vehicles traveling through downtown. Delray Beach welcomes various types of transportation, including street-legal golf carts, which can be driven on local roads with a speed limit of 35 mph or less, scooters and of course bicycles. On Atlantic Avenue there are designated golf cart and scooter parking spots and bike racks at the SW and NE corner of Atlantic Avenue and 2nd Street. There are also art-inspired bike racks along Pineapple Grove, and facilities at the Welcome Center by the beach.
In the meantime, we encourage visitors to park their cars at a convenient peripheral location and walk into town or use the Downtowner or Katcha Ride. The Downtowner is an app-driven free transportation service that picks up passengers in golf carts within the greater downtown area and takes them to their desired Delray Beach destination for no charge, (although it is nice to tip the driver). To request a ride, you must download their app at http://www.ridedowntowner.com/download
Katcha Ride can be reached at Katcha_Ride, 561-404-3393
There are currently three public charging stations for electrical vehicles in downtown Delray Beach. They can be found in the northwest corner of the Banker's Row parking lot, which is located at 200 NE 1st Avenue.
