Not really free, but leave them a tip. Call in advance. They will give you an estimated time or say no One is available. Worth it for saving your feet! Put the number in your phone.

Worked well one day but had problems getting rides after that. Be aware that they don’t work on holidays. The vehicle we were in had a broken seat that slid around. Concept is good and maybe service is better during a non-holiday week.

We utilized this service to ride from our hotel to Pier 60. Our driver was very informative on restaurants and things in the area. Great option to utilize for transporation if you prefer not to walk or drive.

Used this service several times while in town for a Girl's trip. We were so pleased to have locals give us recommendations on restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend using this service BUT DON'T FORGET TO TIP the Drivers. They DEFINITELY deserve it.

This is the best service we found in Clearwater Beach. The drivers are courteous, professional, and friendly. They will get you where you need to go on short notice and no charge. Just give a few dollars tip for a short ride relieves the anxiety...More

We are sorry for the confusion. Our rates to downtown Clearwater vary depending on time and demand for our service. $10 is the usual rate. If you were charged $12 that means we were picking you up in a busier time. Usually $12 on weekends...More

I had never before experienced Florida Free Rides before and they are indeed free although the driver works for tips. Our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable of Clearwater. He gave us recommendations of restaurants which were spot on.
