Metro Taxi is offering the University Ride (URide) Safe® debit card.
The URide Safe® Card is Metro Taxi's solution to a university student's safe ride transportation. It is a no-cash, personal debit card that can be used in any Metro Taxi throughout Connecticut.
The debit card account is easily accessed and refreshed via our web site, and enables students to manage their account online. It’s also a great gift for parents or guardians to buy their college-bound loved ones to ensure they have safe, dependable transportation, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The idea was first suggested by Isabelle Scalzi who co-owns Metro Taxi with her husband Bill.
Through anecdotal reports by students, Isabelle saw a need for them to have access to safe and reliable transportation at all hours of the day and night. And so the URide Safe® Card was born out of necessity.
