Free. On-Demand. Electric Rides.

(It's not too good to be true. It's just the best idea on four wheels.)

The Nickel Ride is your free, eco-friendly ridesharing service around the downtown districts of select cities. We help destinations get greener while bringing foot traffic right to the door of local businesses. Best of all, you get around without spending a nickel, thanks to the brands that advertise in and on our electric vehicles.
