No Votran services on holidays; free trolley service on New Year’s Eve

Filed under DAYTONA BEACH

SPECIAL TO THE DAYTONA TIMES

Votran will not operate bus service Christmas Day, Tuesday, Dec. 25, and New Year’s Day, Tuesday, Jan. 1, in the Greater Daytona Beach Area, Southeast and West Volusia County areas.

Votran night service will close two hours early Christmas Eve, at approximately 10 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 24.

Votran will waive fares for New Year’s Eve trolley and night service beginning at 7 p.m. Dec. 31.

“This is a safe and festive way to get around town,” said Steven Sherrer, Votran general manager.

“The service coincides nicely with the county’s Light Up Volusia Nights partnership in the core beach area. It gives residents and visitors another transportation option to go ice skating at the band shell and take in the sights and sounds of the New Year’s Eve festivities.”

Service until 2 a.m.

The trolleys will serve the Main Street Daytona Beach New Year’s Eve celebration and other destinations on S.R. A1A.  The trolley route operates from Granada Boulevard to Dunlawton Avenue with a loop onto Beach Street between Orange Avenue and International Speedway Boulevard. The trolleys will operate with night Routes 1 and 17 to provide service every 20 minutes until 2 a.m. on Jan. 1.

The free night service is available to the public.  The regular night service routes 3, 4, 10, and 15 will end at their normal time published in the schedule.
