Palm Tran, Palm Beach County’s public transportation system, is updating its 3,200 bus stop signs and poles throughout the county.
Palm Tran is replacing older signs that are not as customer friendly, especially for disabled customers.
Every bus stop will feature a larger sign that is fully ADA compliant with color contrast and bigger letters and numbers.
In addition, for the first time, a smaller sign that reads “BUS STOP” in raised letters and in Braille will be attached to every pole. This makes it easier for visually impaired customers to distinguish bus stop signs from other sign poles and helps make the system more navigable.
The $417,000 project was awarded to AC Signs of Orlando through the county’s competitive bid process. Palm Tran received funding for this project through the Urbanized Area Formula federal grant program.

Palm Tran purchased 5,000 bus stop signs and poles from AC Signs (a division of Decamil), which is also responsible for installation. Additional signs will be stored for spares, replacements, and new service offerings.
AC Signs began installation July 11 with an ambitious plan to finish by the end of October. The company is installing the signs in numeric route order, though many stops serve multiple routes.
