Freebee Service Expanded to Three Tavernier Locations Near MM 91.5 effective June 15, 2021

Tavernier Town Center
Mariners Hospital Complex
Good Health Clinic

In response to requests from Islamorada residents to use Freebee get to a medical appointment and to businesses in the Tavernier Town Center, the Village is happy to announce that beginning June 15, 2021, the service was expanded to serve three specific locations at the south end of Tavernier. The locations are exclusively the Tavernier Town Center, the Mariners Hospital Complex and the Good Health Clinic. The expanded service is being provided by Freebee at no additional cost to the Village.

All rides must either begin or end in Islamorada. A Freebee rider can travel from a location in Islamorada to one of the Tavernier locations now offered and can travel back from the Tavernier location to Islamorada. Rides that both begin and end north of the Tavernier Creek Bridge are not allowed.

VILLAGE-WIDE FREEBEE RIDESHARING PROGRAM
Three vehicles able to service the entire distance of the Village

Freebee provides a door-to-door transportation service free to the public with environmentally friendly electric vehicles. The Freebee Electric Vehicle Ridesharing Service began providing transportation on Upper Matecumbe Key in November 2018. The Village was able to expand the popular Freebee program to serve all of Islamorada in March 2020 with two new larger electric vehicles that could drive on the highway and cross bridges.

Freebee picks up customers right at their home, hotel or a business within Islamorada. Request a ride and jump on board the electric vehicle to visit your favorite Islamorada destination. It’s not only a fun alternative transportation option – it reduces traffic congestion, addresses drinking and driving and reduces the Village’s carbon footprint.

Two Tesla Model X vehicles that accommodate up to seven passengers and one larger vehicle that can accommodate a wheelchair and up to nine passengers provide the Village-wide service. Rides are available from the north (approximately Mile Marker 90) to the south end (approximately Mile Marker 72) of the Village. Beginning June 15, 2021, the service was expanded to allow riders to also access businesses near Mile Marker 91.5 in Tavernier, specifically the Tavernier Town Center, the Mariners Hospital Complex and the Good Health Clinic.

Beginning July 1, 2022, the service hours were expanded to begin providing the transportation services at 7:00 a.m. daily.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
