There are now two free ride services in downtown Delray Beach.
The fixed route and on demand transportation options are funded by the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency and will be replacing the Downtown Roundabout Trolley.
The new initiative is called Connect Delray Beach.
Freebee offers point to point rides in their easy to spot, eco-friendly golf carts with drivers who know the area.
John Janusz is the Director of Economic Development for Freebee and he says they call their drivers “Brand Ambassadors” because their so much more than just drivers, they’re ambassadors for Delray Beach.
“They’re going to know where people can go for entertainment, what they can do on a rainy day, where to go on the beach, what restaurants serve what cuisine at which times of the day – so their more than just someone driving the vehicle, they’re a concierge and they’re going to be on a regular schedule here so they’re going to be faces in the community,” Janusz said.
