MANHATTAN,— A free shuttle service is making its way to the Manhattan Downtown area this Summer. The Downtown Area Shuttle, or DASH, is a five-passenger, fully electric, low-speed vehicle that will support tourism and enhance residents’ work and play lifestyles.
To catch the shuttle, riders can text (785) 379-DASH, or hail the shuttle on the street. Riders can then enjoy a safe and free journey to local restaurants, services, and attractions. For good service, riders are encouraged to tip the volunteer drivers.
“We wanted to create another frictionless, fun, and easy service that enhances the already stellar array of amenities the Little Apple has to offer,” said Green Apple Bikes Program Director, Jonathan Rivers. “We can offer this service for free because our electric car cuts out the cost of fuel and because of our partnerships with wonderful sponsors.”
The shuttle will operate within a one-square mile of Manhattan’s urban core. Beyond downtown, other key areas within this service area include Aggieville, City Park, the Post Office, the Manhattan Public Library, and the Douglass Community Recreation Center.
By leveraging the DASH, riders can do their part to help reduce traffic congestion in high-density downtown areas, support local commerce, and enjoy a new (and free) way to experience Manhattan.
