Votran schedule during Hurricane Dorian
Votran, Volusia County’s transportation system, will operate on a regular schedule Monday. The fleet of buses will assist with evacuations related to Hurricane Dorian.
“Votran will be fully prepared at all times possible to properly handle transportation needs to and from designated shelters,” said Votran Director Rob Stephens. “We have been working with local nonprofits that serve the homeless community to make sure they are aware of the transportation and shelter services.”
Four buses will transport homeless and transient people to the public shelter at the Volusia County Fairgrounds at 1 and 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 2. Pick-up points will be at 340 North St., Daytona Beach; 310 Douglas St., New Smyrna Beach; 201 N. Myrtle Ave., New Smyrna Beach; and 122 W. Euclid Ave., DeLand.
The general population can use any bus stop to obtain a ride to a shelter.
Riders should bring only what they need at the shelters. Those who are traveling to pet-friendly shelters may bring their pets in carriers or on leashes. Carts will not be allowed on the buses.
