    Stop Searching, Start Vacationing

    Getting around St. Pete Beach can be a challenge in the busy season, with more than 6.5 million vacationers descending on the area each year. Uber and Lyft are always decent options, but may not know the area, restaurants, and tricky beach drop-off and pick-up points. Furthermore, they may be subject to surge pricing that will cost you an arm and a leg during happy hour or typical hotel weekend check-out times. Here’s a list of the top transportation options for the St. Pete area. Whether it’s a beach trip, restaurant drop-off, or airport pick-up, we’ve got you covered.

    Freebee Shuttle

    Freebee is a free, on-demand transportation service, brought to you by St. Pete Beach! The vehicles are electric golf carts that you’ll see zipping between the high-traffic beach zones. There’s no way to call ahead or schedule a ride, so just raise your hand and flag one down the old-fashioned way. Drivers are compensated courtesy of the City of St. Pete Beach. It’s completely free to you, even the tip. In fact, per the City's wishes, gratuities cannot be accepted for service. And if you’re sandy, don’t worry...it’s meant for beachgoers! 

    This is our vote for best transportation option for beach trips.
