The Nickel Ride will transport people within the Cape Coral Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) boundary that stretches from the Cape Coral Parkway to the bridge to Palm Tree Boulevard, several blocks of Del Prado Boulevard, north Southeast 46th Lane, Miramar Street to the south, and portions of Coronado Parkway up to the old Cape Coral golf course.

"The Nickel Ride coming to South Cape was born out of a necessity that has transpired from the years of sustained growth the South Cape and surrounding area has seen," said Nickel Ride founder and CEO Judah Longgrear.

"With nearly 65 businesses in the South Cape, we feel there is a great opportunity to provide an alternative solution for guest and tourist experiencing the city," said Longgrear.

How does the Nickel Ride keep its services free? Every vehicle in the Nickel Ride fleet is a host for local advertisers and business owners.
