The Nickel Ride Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary with Official Fort Myers Ribbon Cutting

The Nickel Ride, an innovative and eco-friendly transportation service that connects your community with local businesses, today announced its scheduled event, the Fort Myers Ribbon Cutting & The Nickel Ride’s 1-Year Anniversary Party, to gather with the local community and city officials as the company celebrates the enormous success of its first year in operation.

Downtown Fort Myers, FL, the city where it all started for The Nickel Ride, will be the center of attention on Tuesday, September 4. A year has passed and The Nickel Ride has taken off. In just under a year, The Nickel Ride has expanded to four cities in Southwest Florida, with several more planned for the remainder of 2018. However, it was the trust and innovative mindset of Downtown Fort Myers that was the launchpad of The Nickel Ride’s success. After the first month of operating, it was clear that The Nickel Ride’s innovative rideshare service was a must-have amenity in any high-density growth area. The city of Fort Myers has significantly benefited from the free service and there are plans for several more innovative services in the future.

I always knew The Nickel Ride was going to be a success, I just never imaged it would grow this quickly and be this vital to the communities we currently serve,” said Judah Longgrear, CEO, and Founder of The Nickel Ride. “I’m honored and humbled by the success The Nickel Ride has accomplished this year and the best part is that we’re just getting started! I hope other cities in Florida and throughout the country recognize the unlimited potential our services can bring to their location. The Nickel Ride looks forward to enhancing the well-being of our upcoming communities as well as the future communities that will partner with us.”

There will be an official ribbon cutting ceremony with the city of Fort Myers to welcome in a new era for The Nickel Ride as it continues to enhance its services in the growing downtown area. The company is also excited to announce that it will be moving its headquarters to a new location in Downtown Fort Myers. There will be a tour of the new office followed by a champagne toast before heading over to the reception party at Millennial Brewing Co.
