Posted On: October 22, 2018

Florida is celebrating its first annual statewide Mobility Week from Oct. 27 to Nov. 3. Mobility Week, launched in 2016 in Central Florida, is a collection of outreach events intended to bring attention to safe multimodal transportation choices. In honor of the event, Votran will participate in several community events. 

Votran staff will attend the New Smyrna Beach Farmers Market on Saturday, Oct. 27. A tent will be set up at Votran’s connection point on the corner of Julia Street and Sams Avenue from 8 to 11 a.m. The River to Sea Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) will also be present to promote bicycle and pedestrian safety and hand out promotional items. Attendees can meet professional stock car racing driver Scott Lagasse from 8 to 9 a.m. Lagasse is a supporter of the Florida Department of Transportation's “Alert Today Alive Tomorrow” campaign. A “Ride with Rob” event will begin at 9:45 a.m. Votran General Manager Rob Stephens will board the Route 44 bus at Julia Street and Sams Avenue and ride the one-hour route. WSBB AM 1230 will broadcast live from the bus during the ride. 

On Saturday, Nov. 3, Votran and the River to Sea TPO will have a booth at the Halifax Arts Festival on Beach Street in Daytona Beach, where they will provide information on Votran, fit attendees for free bicycle helmets and promote bicycle and pedestrian safety.
