Votran holding public workshops for feedback
May 5, 2021
Did you know that you can help shape the county’s public transportation needs? Votran is working on major updates to its transit development plan, or TDP, and needs inputs from the community. The TDP is a 10-year strategic planning document assessed and updated every five years to provide a guide for development of the transit system over the next decade.
Votran will hold two in-person meetings, with an option to participate virtually. Meetings will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, May 17, at the Daytona Beach Regional Library, 105. E. Magnolia Ave., Daytona Beach; and from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 20, at the Frank T. Bruno, Jr. County Council Chambers, Room 204, Thomas C. Kelly Administration Center, 123 West Indiana Ave., DeLand. Individuals who want to attend Monday’s meeting virtually should register at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7375394671399596043, and individuals who want to attend Thursday’s meeting virtually should register at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4534977904854253067. After a brief presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide their opinions.
Feedback from individuals, whether or not they are Votran patrons, provides insight into public transportation needs and issues of the people and organizations in Volusia County and the region. Individuals who don’t currently utilize the county’s public transit service can provide valuable feedback on why they are not riders and what changes may improve their likelihood of using the service in the future.
“Safe and effective transportation is imperative to ensure a thriving community,” said Votran General Manager Kelvin Miller. “We’re looking to our residents to offer feedback on their needs and expectations, so we can continue to provide transportation options that best serve our area.”
