Our Mission & Vision

Value to Customer and Community

From our competitive and transparent pricing, to the scope and flexibility of our business, The 5 Ride is committed to making our services a genuine benefit to our customers’ lives. We want to see you smile every time you see us coming.

Empower Honorable Businesses

We know how difficult it is for honest business owners to survive in a world of cheap goods, fake reviews, and the bait and switch tactics that give tourist rich industries a bad reputation. That’s why we promote only the best vetted local businesses.

Protecting Human Life

Hwy 98 on Okaloosa Island has averaged 400+ accidents per year for the past ten years and more than 900 of them were alcohol related. There are nine memorials on a 4.5 mile stretch alone. You don’t have to be a mathematician to see why what we do is important.

The 5 Ride is proud to share a thriving business community with the following local businesses.
