Looking for a designated driver this New Year’s Eve? Hop on Votran’s New Year’s Eve trolley and night service.
Votran waives 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 bandshell and take in the sights and sounds of the New Year’s Eve festivities.”
The trolleys will serve the Main Street Daytona Beach New Year’s Eve celebration and other destinations on State Road. 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.
Votran will not operate bus service New Year’s Day in the Greater Daytona Beach Area, Southeast and West Volusia County areas.
