Palm Tran Honors MLK Jr. in Annual Parade

Throughout February, Black History Month, Palm Tran in West Palm Beach, FL, is honoring the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a specially decorated bus that debuted at the 2018 MLK Parade in Riviera Beach, FL.

“Palm Tran supports equal rights and opportunities for everyone; therefore, honoring the legacy of a leader in the civil rights movement is extremely important,” said Palm Tran Executive Director Clinton B. Forbes. “We love supporting the community and seeing everyone come together in remembrance of Dr. King.”

The exterior design of the 60-foot articulated bus centers on the theme “Youth Dreams, Adult Dreams; Become a Reality,” including a bus wrap symbolic of kente cloth, a collage picture of King and quotes from him. It will operate on routes throughout Palm Beach County until March.

More than 50 Palm Tran employees and volunteers participated in the parade, marching alongside the bus and presenting the crowd with free passes.
