Electric Transit Vehicle Proposed for Islamorada

At the July 19, 2018 Village Council meeting, there was a presentation from Freebee, a company that provides a transportation service free to the public with environmentally friendly electric vehicles. Freebee is proposing an on-request transit service for Upper Matecumbe Key, a service that would reduce the number of vehicles on the road and provide visitors with a “green” alternative to visit local shops and restaurants. On its website, Freebee describes its transit solution as “a fun, alternative transportation option.”
