Long Beach creates app offering free shuttle rides to downtown area

LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Getting a ride in Long Beach just got a lot less expensive.



The city launched a shuttle service offering free rides downtown. You have to download The Free Ride app.

Not only is the ride free, but the emissions are free as well. TFR uses zero-emission electric vehicles.

The shuttles run Sunday through Wednesday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The free rides were made possible through $100,000 from Prop A funding. The pilot program finishes at the end of May.
