Riviera city transit is expected to use a new, less expensive transporter to transport passengers and goods between the city and the city’s other transportation options, according to a joint statement by the city of Riviera Beach and the Riviera Transportation Authority.
The Riviera Transit Authority will partner with a consortium of technology companies to provide the new transport system, which is expected be ready for use by 2019, said the statement.
The consortium will also develop an app that will help residents and visitors get around and stay connected to the transit system, according the statement from the Riviere Transportation Authority and Riviera-City Transit.
The city is planning to use the new system to connect Riviera beach to other cities and to help people commute from their homes, Riviera Mayor Jim Chalfont said.
“We will use the transportation option we have and it will be used for intermodal travel and to connect people with the airport,” Chalfon said.
“We have no choice but to utilize this transportation option.”
The city will use its new technology to connect the Rivieras airport to the city, where Riviera residents can use its shuttle service, according a city news release.
Riviera Beach is planning a $10 million expansion of the airport to accommodate a number of airlines, including Emirates and Qantas, according.
