*F.R.E.D. is currently under service and off the road. We apologize for the inconvenience.


Next time you need a lift Downtown, just give F.R.E.D. a call, 757-478-7233. F.R.E.D. is a FREE battery-operated, state-of-the-art people mover available to riders aged 8 and up.  You can’t miss F.R.E.D. driving through the streets of downtown. In fact, think of him as just another Downtown Public Service Ambassador. 

Area served: Trips must originate or end in the Downtown Improvement District. Hours: Monday-Thursday, 11am-9pm; Friday, 11am-11:30pm; and Saturday 3:30pm-11:30pm. Call 757-478-7233 for service.
*Hours may vary.

Due to DMV regulations, passengers on F.R.E.D must be over 8 years of age. 

* COVID-safety precautions in place, including fully vaccinated drivers, plexiglass dividers between seats, and a full cleaning in between every ride. We ask for your patience as FRED finds his footing after being off the road for a full year.


Monday-Thursday, 11am-9pm; Friday, 11am-11:30pm; and Saturday 3:30pm-11:30pm
