Please visit Votran for county-wide public transit options, including a step-by-step trip planner.

Find your local bank & healthcare providers

For your personal and business banking needs, there are a number of established banks to choose from including Bank of America, Regions Bank, SunTrust, and more.

Healthcare providers include AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach and Florida Health Care Plans. Be sure to check your insurance plan and coverage. Research which doctor's offices and medical care facilities are part of your in-network providers and this will help you avoid paying higher rates for out-of-network care.
