Due to an exceptional response to SunRail, Votran will add weekday shuttle service to the DeBary SunRail station from the Deltona Plaza, 1200 Deltona Blvd., Deltona

This temporary service will support the successful launch of the SunRail service until May 16.  SunRail is a commuter rail system that does not operate on the weekend.

“I don’t think we anticipated the number of riders during the first two days,” said Liz Suchsland, Votran’s assistant general manager.  “Votran is adding this shuttle service as a customer convenience.  We will discontinue the shuttles when SunRail starts charging full fares in anticipation ridership will level off.”

The parking lot at the DeBary SunRail station has been overflowing at times Thursday and Friday and many riders haven’t realized that SunRail trains operate more frequently in the early morning and late afternoon rush hours.  To assist with rider information and education Votran will have a customer service representative at the DeBary station throughout the day next week and will increase its outreach efforts in the form of additional rider information.

The free shuttle service will begin Monday, May 5, and run weekdays through May 16; buses will run nonstop every 30 minutes from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

In addition, peak hour weekday service is funded to provide feeder buses to DeBary Station.  Four bus routes will transport riders to and from the SunRail station from 4:15 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3:15 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. weekdays. SunRail 30 and 32 will operate using existing Votran bus stops. SunRail 31 and 33 are express routes with limited stops.

SunRail 30 will serve DeLand, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. 17-92 from the DeLand Intermodal Transportation Facility to the DeBary SunRail station. This route will stop at established Votran bus stops.

SunRail 31 will serve DeLand, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. Highway 17-92, from Northgate Shopping Plaza with limited stops.

SunRail 32 will serve Deltona, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. 17-92 and Saxon, Normandy and Deltona boulevards. This route will stop at established Votran bus stops.

SunRail 33 will serve Deltona, Orange City and DeBary via U.S. Highway 17-92 and Saxon, Providence and Howland boulevards from Dupont Lakes Shopping Center with limited stops.
