Effective Sunday, June 20, Votran Route 44 will transition from fixed-route service to FLEX service. The new route, called FLEX 44, will operate as a call first, curb-to-curb service in a dedicated area within New Smyrna Beach. FLEX 44 will operate in the same manner as existing the FLEX 42 and FLEX 43 and will serve riders within a three-quarter mile radius of State Road 44 from downtown New Smyrna Beach to the Walmart just west of Interstate 95.
Votran continuously evaluates operations and implements route adjustments several times annually in an effort to best optimize service. Additionally, for the past several years Votran has provided an annual report to the Volusia County Council addressing current service as well as future service options for consideration and direction.
