Prepaid Taxi Cards Give Students a Safe Ride, Parents a Peace of Mind

By  | 

A program is taking off across the sunshine state giving college kids a safe lift.

The cab cash program is a prepaid taxi card for college students across the southeast.

The company has an exclusive agreement with City Taxi in Tallahassee so students can not only have a safe ride home after a night out, but a way to get around any time of day.

"I think it's a good idea just for students to get off campus to get food and also to do fun things like go to the dollar theater in Tallahassee. I know sometimes it's hard to just rely on people who have cars to get around so I think it would be a good idea," says Stephanie Brown, a junior at Florida State University.

A spokesperson for University Cab Cash says the program reaches 34 schools and gives parents a peace of mind.
