Florida International University upgraded student transportation by teaming up with Freebee, which provided six Tesla Model X’s to drop students off at nearby locations in Sweetwater.
The electric Teslas aid in one of the university’s goals: to reduce its carbon footprint.
“I think it’s pretty cool we can be picked up in a Tesla,,” said FIU student Donaldson Beauford. “That’s a cool perk. There’s not a lot of people that can say that.”
The Freebee runs Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and on Saturdays till 11 p.m. if there are at-home football games.
