Freebee provides a transportation service free to the public with environmentally friendly electric vehicles. This is a six-month trial of the on-request transit service for Upper Matecumbe Key, a service that would reduce the number of vehicles on the road and provide residents and visitors with a "green" alternative to visit local shops and restaurants. Freebee picks up customers right at their home, hotel or business within the service area. On its website, Freebee describes its transit solution as "a fun, alternative transportation option."

The Village Council approved the six-month trial period for the Freebee service for Upper Matecumbe Key. The service is limited to Upper Matecumbe Key for the trial period because the vehicles are restricted to 35 mph and cannot travel across the bridges of the Overseas Highway. The service will be evaluated and expansion to more of the Village with vehicles that can travel on the highway will be considered.
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.
