Votran service interruptions during Bike Week
Posted On: March 8th
Bike Week will bring heavy traffic to Volusia County, and Votran riders should expect numerous delays, interruptions and route deviations. Schedule delays can occur from March 10 to 19. Detours are subject to change without notice.
“Votran will make every effort to notify customers as soon as the detours and route deviations are expected,” said Steve Sherrer, Votran general manager. “Buses will be rerouted to secondary roads when traffic becomes congested. The latter part of Bike Week tends to affect Votran routes and schedules more than the earlier days.”
From March 15 to 18, Votran vehicles will not use the Intermodal Transit Facility at the Ocean Center. Route deviations include:
- Routes 1, 18 and 19 will make service stops on State Road A1A.
- Route 3 will not serve Riverside Drive between Second and Third streets.
- Route 8 will make service stops on Halifax Avenue.
- Route 11 will experience service interruptions and detours. Buses will use U.S. 1 from Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard to Fairview Avenue. There will be no service to Volusia Square and the Daytona Flea Market.
- Route 17A/B outbound will be unable to use Main Street beginning March 10. It will use the International Speedway Boulevard bridge in both directions.
- Route 18 inbound, from State Road A1A, will use Seabreeze Boulevard to Mason Avenue and U.S. 1 to the Votran Transfer Plaza.
- Routes 18 and 19 will not serve Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Daytona Beach International Airport.
- Route 60 will run a regular route and will have a bus added to the route.
Night and Sunday service will operate from the Transfer Plaza from March 15 to 19. Route deviations include:
- Route 1 will use International Speedway Boulevard to State Road A1A and will end at Vining Court and Granada Boulevard. There will be no service on the Granada Bridge.
- Routes 3, 4 and 10 will use Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard, Beach Street and Michigan Street to Fairview Avenue outbound and inbound.
