The modified Destin Route 30 will operate an hourly service between Elder Service, Publix in Fort Walton Beach, Publix at Shoppes at Paradise Pointe (FWB), and Target/Winn Dixie in Destin.

  • The route will also provide a connection from Destin to Okaloosa Island Boardwalk, connecting with Destin Route 30 and Okaloosa Route 20 at the top of each hour.
