New Intrastate Bus Stop On Commission Agenda

Daytona Beach City Hall
(News Daytona Beach)

Daytona Beach, FL - The Daytona Beach City Commission's latest agenda shows that a European bus company could be bringing business to the city.

According to the agenda, the company is known as FlixBus, which is headquartered out of Munich, Germany with an office in Los Angeles. FlixBus serves areas of Europe along with parts of the United States. The company already has one route in Florida that runs between Miami and Orlando.

Up for talks tonight is licensing that will allow FlixBus to use an existing bus turn-out lane within the right-of-way of Cornerstone Boulevard adjacent to Tanger Outlet, to load and unload passengers. This will set up a stop in Daytona Beach on a new route that takes passengers from Miami to Jacksonville.

That stop will be served eight times a week by FlixBus, according to the agreement.

The agreement between FlixBus and Daytona Beach will also have the company maintain liability insurance throughout the term of the agreement and obtain a standard right-of-way permit prior to installing any signage. All of this at no cost to the city or taxpayers.

The city commission meets tonight (December 3rd) at 6 p.m.
