Services

Take a Free Ride is a nonprofit transportation currently serving the residents of  Fleming Island and parts of Middleburg up to and including College Drive.  We take passengers from their homes to our sponsored bars/restaurants (Whitey’s Fish Camp, Brick Oven Pizzeria and Gastropub, Mercury Moon Grille & Bar, Talons at Eagle Harbor, V Pizza, The Sunset Tiki Bar at Drs Lake Marina and Southern Social Whiskey Bar and Lounge) and back.

Simply call or text us at 904-868-RIDE (7433) if you wish to be picked up at your Fleming Island and into Middleburg (as far as College Drive) home!

Take A Free Ride service is made available by the generous donations from the 7 Elite Restaurants on Fleming Island and Middleburg and also from our amazing Business Sponsors who believe in our mission to reduce drinking and driving and care about providing you a safe way home as well as further educating our community on the dangers of drinking and driving.  After expenses, all additional money will go toward building educational programs designed to touch our local high school students on being responsible if impaired by drugs or alcohol.

If you too wish to support and use our service, we encourage you to make a donation to our life changing cause.

Donations can be made either online or you can provide “TIP Donations” while you are on the bus into the Tip Box that sits up front in the bus.  You can also simply ask the driver to use your Credit Card while on the bus and he will let you run your card in our Square payment device on our phone.                

We pay our Drivers well and the tips help pay for gas and wear and tear on our bus.

 We can always provide you with a receipt for your donation as we are a 501c nonprofit.
