Votran makes schedule changes to accommodate SunRail

Filed under DAYTONA BEACH

Votran has made several route and time changes to provide feeder service to the DeBary SunRail station.

Four buses will transport riders to and from the SunRail station from 4:15 to 9 a.m. and 3:15 to 8:30 p.m. weekdays. SunRail 30 and 32 will operate using existing Votran bus stops. SunRail 31 and 33 are express routes with limited stops.

SunRail 30 will serve DeLand, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. Highway 17-92 from the DeLand Intermodal Transportation Facility to the DeBary SunRail station. This route will stop at established Votran bus stops.

SunRail 31 will serve DeLand, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. Highway 17-92, from Northgate Shopping Plaza with limited stops.

SunRail 32 will serve Deltona, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. Highway 17-92 and Saxon, Providence and Howland boulevards. This route will stop at established Votran bus stops.

SunRail 33 will serve Deltona, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. Highway 17-92 and Saxon, Providence and Howland boulevards from Dupont Lakes Shopping Center with limited stops.

“We are excited about starting this new feeder service, said Votran General Manager Steve Sherrer. “At the same time, we are expecting that there will be some learning and adjustments during the first months of operation.”
