The City of Anaheim and Anaheim Resort Transportation launched FRAN—Free Ride Around (the) Neighborhood—an app-based, microtransit system using electric vehicles. The FRAN fleet of 10 all-electric Polaris GEM cars connects destinations in Anaheim’s Center City area. The shared vehicles arrive on demand via FRAN’s smartphone application. The app contains points-of-interest information, and future editions are planned to update driving visitors in real time on where to park near FRAN pick-up spots.
FRAN is a free, electric-vehicle service accessed through app technology and operated by a public transportation agency, not by a private company.
