BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Space Coast Area Transit will begin service on three new fixed routes starting April 3, servicing Titusville and Port St. John, and adding an additional bus route in the beach area south of Patrick Air Force Base and north of U.S. Route 192.
■ Route 10, Central Titusville
Due to continued requests and development in the Central Titusville area, the new Route 10 will operate weekdays from 7:00 AM to 7:55 PM and on Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 5:55 PM.
Major stops include Titus Landing, Titusville Library, Parrish Healthcare Center, Publix Supermarket at Colonial Coast Crossing, Parrish Health and Fitness, Titusville Walmart, and Aldi Supermarket.

■ Route 11, Port St. John
This route brings transit service to what has been long called a “transit desert”, a priority for new service for many years. Route 11 will operate weekdays from 7:07 AM to 8:04 PM and on Saturdays from 8:07 AM to 6:04 PM.
Major stops include Cocoa Commons, Publix at Indiavista Center, Brevard Heath Alliance, Port St. John Plaza, and Port St. John Social Security Administration. At Cocoa Commons, riders can transfer to Route 6 Cocoa/Rockledge.

■ Route 30, South Beach Connector
This route separates existing Route 26 into two segments, providing a shorter overall trip for passengers along the beachside. The new Route 30 will operate weekdays from 7:00 AM to 7:55 PM and on Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 5:55 PM.
Major stops include the Orlando-Melbourne International Airport, Florida Tech, Downtown Melbourne, Melbourne Beach, Canova Beach, Indian Harbour Place, Eau Gallie Art District, and Melbourne City Hall.
Along the route, riders can transfer to Route 21 Downtown Melbourne, Route 24 Melbourne/Eau Gallie, Route 25 Melbourne/Palm Bay, Route 26 South Beach, and Route 29 Melbourne/Viera.

Additionally, the current Route 26, South Beach, will be revised to serve the area between Indian Harbour Place at Publix and S. Atlantic Ave in Cocoa Beach with 60-minute headways instead of the current 2-hour frequency.
Riders can then transfer to the new Route 30 which incorporates the southern portion of the former Route 26. This change gives Route 26 enough time to transfer every hour to Route 9 Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach at S. Atlantic Ave. and S. 13th St.

“For those who rely on public transit to get to work, school, the grocery store, and other essential places that help sustain their livelihood, this expansion equals peace of mind for both them and their families,” said Lance Parker, Space Coast Area Transit’s Manager of Operations and Maintenance.
New and updated routes and schedules take effect April 3. For questions, call the RideLine at 321-633-1878. All three new routes are currently funded by the Federal Transit Administration CARES Act.
