Transfer points are available at other locations throughout the county, usually at a major shopping center or other facility where two or more buses cross paths.
The Volusia County Government governs the county as three regions, and VOTRAN does the same with its service. Bus routes are grouped into three regions:
- East (two hubs in Daytona Beach). The East side routes generally service the Daytona Beach, Port Orange, and Ormond Beach areas, With a connector (Route 60) to the DeLand area to connect with Routes 20 and 24 on the Westside.
- Southeast (hub in New Smyrna Beach). There are Two Southeast Routes and Flex Service routes serving the New Smyrna Beachside and Mainland areas. Route 40 goes northbound to Port Orange via US1 and Nova Road to connect with the Eastside Routes near Dunlawton Square. Route 41 travels southbound serving Edgewater and Oak Hill.
- West (hub in Orange City). These routes include the 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24, and service the DeBary, Deltona, DeLand and Orange City areas, with three out of the five routes focused mainly on Deltona, though two of the three routes (route 21 & route 22) follow similar paths for most of their assigned trips (eg. the 21 will stop at certain bus stops, with the 22 stopping at the same bus stop the following hour in the opposite direction). All routes servicing western Volusia run hourly from 6:00(though route 21 begins service at 5:33 a.m weekdays, route 24 begins at 5:40 a.m. weekdays.) or 6:30 a.m. until approximately 7:30 p.m. Route 24 connects DeLand to Pierson and Seville in northwestern Volusia County
The East Side division is the only one that provides Sunday and night service for its routes.
