The Volusia County Council created Volusia County’s public transportation system, called Votran, in 1975. Votran is a service of Volusia County Government. Votran provides transportation to the majority of urban and rural areas of the county with a fleet of 82 revenue-producing fixed route buses and 76 paratransit vehicles. Additional service is provided through contracts.  Votran has approximately 212 drivers and the remaining 114 employees work in our maintenance department, dispatch office, customer service office, reservations office, and in the administrative support functions.  Votran’s Mobility Management Center (administration and operations office) in South Daytona was completed in 1998. First Transit, a professional transportation management firm based in Cincinnati, Ohio, contracts with Volusia County to provide the system’s management.
