The Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC is celebrating the approach Year of the Pig with a fun new form of transportation for hotel guests, the FanMObile.  The six-seat electric vehicle is designed to quickly (and whimsically) transports guests from the hotel to one of DC’s hottest destinations, the District Wharf along the Southwest waterfront.

Designed exclusively for Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC—and the first and only electric hotel shuttle in the city—the chauffeured car will make multiple stops between the hotel and along the Wharf’s waterfront. With ergonomic design, this green vehicle is fully loaded with comfortable adjustable bucket seating, ample legroom and weather tight doors for a pleasant, temperate ride year-round.

The FanMObile eliminates all potential driving hassles usually associated with a night out in this popular location. Guests of the hotel will be conveniently dropped off steps away from the Wharf’s concert halls: The Anthem, Pearl Street Warehouse, and Union Stage. The Water Taxi, historic Municipal Fish Market, or the many restaurants located at District Wharf are also easily accessed by designated FanMObile stops.

“It is important to us to provide our guests with the best options for enjoying our neighborhood and the city. The FanMObile is not just a fun and safe way to visit District Wharf but it’s also environmentally friendly and fits with our continuous sustainability efforts,” said Adriaan Radder, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC.

The easily recognizable vehicle will operate year-round with regularly scheduled trips throughout the day and evening hours. The FanMObile is complimentary to overnight guests of the hotel.
