Naples city leaders combat parking fiasco with shuttle service
NAPLES, Fla. — City leaders voted this week to allow a shuttle service that would combat the lack of parking in Olde Naples.
Council members approved a five-year franchise agreement with Slidr, a complimentary and eco-friendly transportation service. The company has a similar venue in Asheville, North Carolina, and will operate up to eight six-passenger electric vehicles in Olde Naples.
The city originally tried to alleviate the parking problems with two free parking garages on the east side of Fifth Avenue South, but the garages would fill up quickly.
Slidr drivers will transport passengers from Fifth Avenue to Third Street and Crayton Cove to the Naples Dock.
