Free Ride Around the Neighborhood: If you need a ride around downtown Anaheim, give FRAN a call! FRAN is a ten minibusses fleet launched in a brief ceremony at the Center Street Promenade. FRAN is a great way to add mobility to the city of Anaheim. Downton Anaheim has beautiful facilities for many people to get to know the city, but mobility around this area might be difficult if you’re not a local.

While FRAN is an acronym, the moniker was inspired by Francisca Avila Rimpau, one of Anaheim’s mothers and founders of the historic Anaheim Colony District. Francisca was a trailblazer with a tenacious force who raised 15 kids and sowed the seeds for early Anaheim’s civic and social landscape. Francisca is part of Anaheim’s history, as she represents the pioneer spirit of local businesses that make their home throughout Center City nowadays. FRAN’s minibusses are named after Francisca and her husband Theodore’s daughters and granddaughters.

FRAN offers on-demand service to a geofenced area of the dynamic downtown corridor in Anaheim. The service does not follow fixed routes. Riders can begin and end their trips at one of the preestablished stops near popular downtown destinations. Explore local destinations and request a FRAN ride using the A-Way WeGo app, available for both Android and Apple users.
