Press Release:

The Nickel Ride Hosts Ribbon Cutting & Launch Party at Shea’s at Lansdowne Street to Celebrate Fifth City Launch, Naples, Florida

The Nickel Ride, an innovative and eco-friendly out-of-home advertising (OOH) service that connects the local community with businesses, today announced its scheduled event, The Nickel Ride's Naples Launch Party, planned for December 14, 2018, with local advertising sponsor, Shea’s at Lansdowne Street. The Nickel Ride team will be there to meet with local community members, businesses, and city officials as they celebrate the launch of their fifth city, Naples, Florida.

With the addition of Naples, The Nickel Ride’s free rideshare service will now be available in five Southwest Florida locations. Naples is known as the crown jewel of Southwest Florida, nuzzled on the sun-soaked beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. The city is notorious for world-class shopping, fine dining, golf courses, and its proximity to the untamed tropical wilderness of The Everglades.

The Nickel Ride will start operating in Naples' exciting downtown location with six Nickel Ride vehicles. A map of our operating radius can be found on our Locations page. Our hours of operation will be: Monday – Sunday: 12:00 pm – 10:00 pm.

My team and I are happy we were able to fit this Naples launch in before the end of the 2018 year,” said Judah Longgrear, Founder & CEO of The Nickel Ride. “It’s in-season here in Florida so the more The Nickel Ride can do to support the local businesses and community the better. When we all work together like this, we’re able to create a cohesive environment that provides the local community and tourists with an easy way to get around Naples’ energetic downtown area. Our goal is to do our part to ensure the Naples location is put in the best position possible for a successful season.”

When: Friday, December 14, from 5 PM to 5:15 PM (Ribbon Cutting) and from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (Launch Party)
