Freebee Electric Vehicle Ridesharing Service to be expanded
to service all areas of Islamorada beginning December 2019
Current Services Continue on Upper Matecumbe Key
GIVE US YOUR INPUT ABOUT THE NEW HOURS OF SERVICE
FREEBEE Electric Vehicle Ridesharing Service has been running on Upper Matecumbe Key since last November. The Village Council voted to extend the program and expand the service to all areas of the Village with vans that can cross bridges. The vans have been ordered and should be able to be put in use in December 2019.
The current door-to-door service is available Thursday through Sunday:
Thursdays and Fridays from 4pm to midnight,
Saturdays from 12pm to midnight and
Sundays from 11am to 8pm
When the Freebee services expand, service hours will be extended to 70 hours a week.
Give us your input about what hours you would like to use Freebee to get to your Islamorada destination.

Residents that have not yet tried the free service can download the Ride Freebee app from the App Store or from Google play. If you don't have a smart phone, you may call 305-984-5057 to request a ride.
Everyone is encouraged to try the service. Just request a ride and jump on board the electric vehicle to visit your favorite "downtown Islamorada" destinations. Freebee will pick up customers right at their home, hotel or business within the service area. It’s not only a fun alternative transportation option – it reduces traffic congestion, addresses drinking and driving and reduces the Village’s carbon footprint. During the first six months of the trial period, 6.24 tons of CO2 emissions were prevented from being released into the atmosphere.Local business interested in advertising on a Freebee vehicle or on the Freebee app can contact Freebee Community Manager John Janusz at firstname.lastname@example.org .
