Big Rapids is in desperate need of a service that can get people around safely. Being in a college town, we need more than what we currently have. Lyft is a service we would be able to use to create more jobs while keeping people safe. Recently, we lost a beautiful soul to a person that decided to get behind the wheel while having too much to drink.

A student at Ferris State said, "The cab services here are pricey, take forever, and are extremely outdated. When the cab takes an hour+ to arrive that gives drunk college kids too much time to find other means of getting somewhere which may put them in dangerous situations. Another huge benefit is for the drivers themselves. It gives a college student an extra means of income which always helps!" 

A local bartender mentioned that, "Working in the bar industry, too many times have I witnessed someone need a ride home & the cabs in town weren't available! Sometimes they dont answer their phone. I've had someone prepay for a ride home and later were contacted saying the cab would be out of town, so he was on his own. The wait times can be insane!"

A statement that was added by a waitress that attends Ferris State said that, "Also working in the bar industry, I've also over heard situations stating the cab wouldn't be able to get to them for 45 minutes to an hour, and that they are pricey. I know we have Safe Ride in town but I have only seen them on Fridays and Saturdays, so those who drink during the week have go without and take the chance or wait a ridiculous amount of time for a cab. I'd personally love to see a driving service in our town to help keep all of us safe!"

It's time to make a change for a safer environment in Big Rapids.
