Freebee now buzzing around Brickell
South Beach has the electric car service, too.
I think Coconut Grove is too small for this service, but it would be cool to get people from the Grove to Brickell using this service since we cannot get the city trolley to come through Coconuty Grove, but again, we didn't get enough signatures on the petition, so I'm assuming people didn't want the trolley and perhaps would not want this service either. I think it's great though. I think people in Coconut Grove prefer to scrounge for parking spaces and then pay for parking, rather than have these free services. Appears that way, anyway.
Some quotes from Sobe Yelp users, I'm sure the Brickell set-up will have the same reactions:
"SO CHILL! What's better than a free ride all over South Beach. You call them or flag one down. We caught a ride with Steve. He said to call him Stevie freebee. Haha. He was a character. Had us laughing and he was jamming his music while dancing and driving. He offered us free coconut water."
"You call, you get in an electric car, you zoom around, you listen to your favorite music as loud as possible, you arrive. Oh, and it's free. The drivers get by on tips If you need to get somewhere in a hurry from South Pointe to 23rd Street, you want to look here. Despite their being approximately 2956295 taxis clogging up the streets of South Beach, getting one to stop for you that has a credit card reader or any interest in doing his job in a considerate manner... it's hard. Go for the electric car."
"If you have ever been in a cab in Miami you know things can get a little sketchy from cab to cab. No fear! A new way to get around on the beach! FREEBEE. Not only is the ride free but sometimes they have other freebies likes Coconut water available for you! These electric powered golf carts on steroids come with a sick sound system, friendly driver and fit 5 passengers per cart. The rides are all free and they specialize on short routes on the beach - from 1st to 41st. The driver plugs in his phone and pumps out music as you whiz by pedestrians, wind blowing in your face."
