Freebee Metrorail Shuttle to Launch Next Month
Breaking news! Palmetto Bay's new and popular Freebee program is expanding. Beginning September 19th, you can hop on a "Freebee" van to take you to the Dadeland South Metrorail station from Palmetto Bay Park, FREE. Two vans will be making both morning and evening scheduled runs. This Park & Ride program is in addition to the existing IBus shuttle program that departs from Holy Rosary-St. Richard's Church. Our other two Freebee vehicles will continue to offer free on-demand rides throughout the Village (download the "ride freebee" app, flag one down, or call for a ride at 305-397-5002).

We are the only municipality in Miami-Dade County allowed access to the bus transitway for our Park n' Ride programs. This makes for a faster way to get to and from Metrorail. To welcome this new Freebee Shuttle system to the Village, please join us for a ribbon-cutting at Palmetto Bay Park on September 19th at 11:30 am. See you there!

Although the current agreement is only for CRE and HDE, the discussion will also include Southwood Middle School in anticipation of an agreement for that school.
