Last week: Boca Raton is officially now the busiest station on the Tri-Rail line, surpassing Miami Metrorail Transfer. No doubt some of the reason is the popularity of new express bus service reducing crowds on the southern part of the line. But it is also because Boca Raton is becoming a major employment and educational hub for South Florida. At SFRTA, our goal is to get people efficiently to work by any means, but efficiency means maximizing coordination with other transportation agencies.
This week: A small item appeared last week that Red Hawk Fire & Security, which provides security systems for commercial clients, was expanding in Boca Raton. Even though it is a small company, it is part of a growing safety and security hub in Palm Beach County, which is now also home to Garda, ADT, GEO Group, and G4S. There has been a lot said about the biotech cluster, but it has been less noticed that a critical mass in the security industry has been developing in our county for some time now.
