A new ride service is coming to the South End area. And the best part? It’s free! Meet the Free Cart Ride.
The service launched in June and will include two carts on a designated route through the neighborhood.
Currently, the service runs from South Mint Street to Remount Road and South Tryon Street to South Blvd. (They’ll be posting their full route soon to Facebook.)
All you have to do is wave down the cart when you see it and hop in. The driver will drop you at the closest stop they can along the route.
Keep in mind that while the rides are free, they do ask that you tip your drivers.
The current schedule is:
- Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- Friday and Saturday – 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Sunday – Noon to 5 p.m.
