“Freebees” are electric, open-air vehicles resembling oversize golf carts. They give free rides on routes in popular, high-traffic areas, and are outfitted with mini HD televisions and audio systems. Riders often are offered discounts and freebies sponsored by the advertising company that pays to outfit the vehicle and promote its brand. And Freebees light up, so they’re easy to see and flag down at night.
