Meeting the needs of our residents is always our first priority here at Frederick Living. With the addition of The Meadows, 55 new cottages in a Pocket Neighborhood setting, a brand new service is now being offered to all residents on campus! We are happy to introduce our new shuttle vehicle, name to be determined, a Polaris GEM 6 passenger electric vehicle!
Our new electric vehicle offers the luxury of more typical shuttle vans but leaves a much smaller environmental footprint! The GEM is whisper quiet with zero emissions and low operating costs. It charges in a standard outlet when not in use to be ready for the next run of residents from their cottage or villa to anywhere else on campus they want to go. It is fully enclosed and climate controlled for year round use, can accommodate folks as tall as 6’8″ tall and has safety features to ensure a comfortable ride. The shuttle will transport residents all over campus during the day, and features a storage compartment on the rear for any gear residents may need to transport with them. The hours revolve around meal times and activities to make it easy for residents to access all of the amenities that we offer here at Frederick Living! Currently the shuttle is running on a predetermined schedule and route throughout campus. We will trial this schedule for the next few weeks and welcome any and all feedback!
*On days when there are 2pm and 6:30pm programs the shuttle will also run until 3pm and until 8pm
Stops include: Oaktree Far End, Patio Homes, Magnolia East, Magnolia West, Bistro, Dogwood Court, Pondside Entry to Oaktree, Maplewood Court, Rotunda(reception), Body Shop, Meadows, Etc.
