Take a Free Ride is a nonprofit company, funded by donations from businesses and consumers.   The donations are used to provide consumers FREE bus service from local establishments to their homes, while leveraging the top advertising median to help local businesses to better serve their community.

Take a Free Ride is a nonprofit transportation service for Fleming Island Residents to get you from your home to our sponsored restaurants and back.

Currently, there are 5 elite restaurants in Fleming Island who have made the socially responsible decision to Sponsor us in our mission to reduce drinking and driving and save lives.  These Sponsors are Whitey's, Brick Oven, Island Life Grill, Mercury Moon, Talons at Eagle Harbor.  We also have one other amazing Sponsor -- Garber AutoMall.

Call or Text us at 904-868-RIDE (7433) and we will pick you up at your Fleming Island home and take you to one of our Sponsors or pick you up from one of our Sponsors if you feel you need a ride home.

Take A Free Ride makes stops at our Sponsors throughout the night seeking passengers ensuring a quick pickup and safe ride after you have enjoyed your night out!  Help us help you to make a great choice and not drink and drive!

Our bus is parked in the Taps parking lot and we start each evening during service hours from Taps.  We make a continuous loop stopping at Brick Oven, Dick's Wings, Island Life Grill, Whitey's Fish Camp, Mercury Moon and Talons at Eagle Harbor.  We pick people up from the restaurants and take them to other sponsors or to their home.  This service runs all night till our Sponsors close.
