Located several miles west of downtown DeLand, near the intersection of Old New York Avenue and Grand Avenue South, the DeLand Amtrak station is just a short bicycle ride away from Hontoon Island State Park, Florida Hospital DeLand, the St. Johns River, municipal services and DeLand's downtown historic district.
The proposed station also provides transit access to most of central Volusia County, as well as Lake County. In addition, the area immediately surrounding the SunRail station provides a unique redevelopment opportunity for local residents and elected officials to serve commuter rail passengers in one of the fastest growing residential areas of the state. The SunRail station will include a park and ride lot with a bus drop off area.
FDOT is still currently reviewing funding options for this station.
